Is there anything quite so beautiful as a hand-built bicycle wheel?

In this class you’ll learn the craft of wheel-building: calculating spoke length, lacing, tensioning, truing, and dishing a wheel. You’ll put theory into practice by building a wheel for Broken Spoke using our materials (so you won't experience any annoying parts-compatibility headaches).

Our aim is that at the end of the course you have the knowledge and skills to embark on your very own wheel-building project. Ever thought about building a dynamo wheel and solving the bike light blues forever?

4 participants. 6 hours.

You don’t need previous experience to take part in this course - although a sense of inner peace and tranquility helps!
