Class Prerequisite: Intro to Wheel Building

In this intermediate level class, those of you who already have some wheel building skills will be guided through the process of building a front wheel with a dynamo hub. 

Why dynamos? Why not! Harness the power of your legs and turn it into usable energy, either plugging into a cache battery or directly to your lights. 

Course does not include materials, but you can purchase those through us. Just email us to let us know which parts you'd like. Remember - when you purchase through LBK you're helping your local bike shop survive!
