Theory and Practice of Wheelbuilding

56 people are interested in this workshop

There can sometimes be a dearth of mechanical workshops at Bike!Bike! (and it can sometimes be hard to pick up advanced skills in volunteer-run spaces) so if folks are interested I can run one on wheelbuilding. I've taken a wheelbuilding course at UBI before and build all the wheels in my day job at a for-profit shop. I can explain some of the physics behind how wheels work, best practices for lacing, truing, and tensioning, and maybe give a hands-on demonstration of lacing if there are parts and tools available. I'd be happy to involve other experienced wheelbuilders in the teaching process if anyone is interested!
