    The clinic put on by Joe Lawwill is great and well worth the money. I highly recommend the clinic to anyone who has not yet taken it.

    If you're saying it's expensive, I'll respond that it's the best investment for a mountain bike you can make compared to components clothing etc. If you're asking the price, I'll leave it to Joe but I think it's under $100. Best money I've ever spent on Mountain Biking and I've spent a few bucks!

    Dwad may be thinking of the private one on one clinics, which gets higher in cost naturally. The clinic to which Rob is referring is under $100 and for four hours. Well worth the money and time, considering the information is something one won't figure out for themselves on the trail. Joe's clinic is really great.
