    I'm trying to look for someplace that has classes on Bicycle Repair near where I live (Myrtle Beach)
    but I'mhaving a hard time locating any. Does anyone know of a resource for looking up classes like
    that, or know of a place nearby that offers training? Where does one go to get formally trained to
    repair bikes? Do local Community Colleges offer that type of stuff? (mine doesn't).

    I want to be able to repair and fiddle with ym deraillers, I want to be able to confidently repair
    my BB and Hubs, and I just don't have the confidence to start ripping stuff apart. Money just
    doesn't shoot out of my butt, and I've spent a considerable amount on bikes and bike parts, and I'm
    nervous about just jumping in and tearing things apart when the extent of my knowledge doesn't go
    much further than Sheldon Brown's website, and a couple of chapters of the Barnett Manual.

    So *how* do you learn? I'd actually be willing to invest in some training, if I just knew where to
    go to find it. Anyone have any ideas?
