Registration is now open for the first two sessions. The cost per session (5 classes per session) is $350 + tax and each class is 2 hours in duration with a 30min question/free time at the end. The $350 fee will include the 4th-edition of Park Tool's Big Blue Book. Participants will also receive a 10% discount on any parts and tool purchases while enrolled.
