For folks here that have taken a beginner clinic in a classroom setting, what stuff did you miss out on that the instructor forgot or neglected and you learned elsewhere?
I went to a clinic a couple of weeks ago at my store (I work parrtime at REI) that was given by a local author. While he was very knowledgeable, there were a number of things that got skimmed over quickly or missed entirely. But then again it was only an hour clinic.
I'm going to another one on Wednesday night and I'm gonna try to contribute as much as I can. But other than the basics (buying a bike, other equipment, trails to ride), what else is there?
I think one thing I want to hit on is the transportation of your bike if you don't live next to a trailhead. That is something that has been missed in past clinics and can make up a big chunk of somone's budget.
What else is there that may not be very apparent?
