Wheel Building Foundations
Learn to build and true wheels! We guide you through the process from component selection to final true. You’ll finish with a clear understanding of how it all comes together, a good wheel truing technique, and a fresh set of wheels.
This class explores the mechanical techniques of wheel building. It begins with a one-on-one consultation to discuss wheel design and component selection. Then we guide you through the process — beginning with lacing the wheels, going in to best practices of adding tension and truing, and finishing with balancing tensions to a final true. Professional tips and tricks make for some fun “ah-ha!” moments. A take-home instructional packet is provided.
