Hey kids, ever wanted to ride around town on some wheels you built yourself? Wanna learn how to make a wonky wheel run true? Don't let all those spokes scare you, wheel building's not as hard as you think.
We will show you how to build and true bicycle wheels. The course is taught by bike mechanic and bike wheel fanatic Joanna Belgrave
This course takes place on a Sunday afternoon from 11 - 530pm.
Part 1: How to calculate spoke length, how to lace a wheel
Part 2: How to tension, true, and dish a wheel
There are only four (4) spaces available, so get them while they're hot! Tickets are £100 and current LBK members can get 10% off.
You will be building your first wheel on our materials. We will provide the hub, spokes, rim, and nipples, as well as wheel truing stands, spoke keys, dishing tools and nipple drivers. (Please note that you'll be building on our materials and won't be keeping this wheel. Better to make mistakes on our components first!) Tea will also be provided.
Let LBK guide the way to this productive form of meditation. The process is repetitive, calming and results in a beautifully hand built wheel. All it requires is patience and positive determination.
