Intro to wheel building.

Tuesday and Wednesday Nov 29 & 30, 6:30-9:30pm

This course will be an overview of how to build bicycle wheels including spoke calculation, lacing, and intro to radial/lateral truing, dish, and tensioning. Prior experience working with wheels a benefit but not necessary.

If you want to build a wheel for yourself bring along your rim, hub, and spokes or purchase them from the shop. Alternatively, you can build a wheel for Pedals for the People!

Taught by OCB's senior mechanic and expert wheel builder Cavan.
