BICYCLE WHEEL BUILDING COURSE
Within the course time you will learn the basics of how to build a wheel.
from lacing to tensioning with our Master Wheel Builder and with the added value of if you want being able to assemble your very own set of wheels to ride on.
Choose any type of wheels you would like to build...
Although please contact us first to discuss through your requirements and availability of components.
A choice of hubs are available for you to build from road, off-road, tandem or internal hub gears.
Rims can be 26″, 27.5", 28" (700c) or 29" high-quality rims from Mavic, Alex, DT, Velocity and H+Son.
We use DT or Sapim stainless spokes in silver or black and single, double or triple butted as they are the very best to use in hand built wheels.
We’ll advise you on components that suit your riding style.
We’re happy to source components you need as part of the service and Sapim spokes are in stock in the common sizes.
If you just want to learn, we can supply practice components. You’re also welcome to bring your own parts if you already have them.
No need to worry about making mistakes, you’ll be expertly guided every step of the way. You only get to leave when you're happy with the final product! Wheel building courses are more commonly booked as 1:1 days as we like giving focused attention, but attending with a friend (1:2) has also worked well and lowers the cost per person.
1:1 – £175 For 2 Days. (Plus Any Ordered Parts For Own Custom Wheels)
1:2 (book as a pair) – £225 (Plus Any Ordered Parts For Own Custom Wheels)
