1-day wheel building workshops

For many keen cyclists, wheel building and repair remain the final bicycle maintenance challenge that they face. And yet―as with hill walking―a little bit of knowledge can be a dangerous thing! Have you ever regretted trying to replace a broken spoke or failed to true a buckled wheel?

There are two 1-day workshops to choose from, both on Saturdays:

If you are looking for a way to improve your understanding of wheels, to master a new skill in a controlled supportive environment, to ride wheels you can trust―and to spend a day doing something really satisfying and useful, this is probably the course for you.
