Wheel Building Tuition

Wheel Building Tuition

Build your own wheel in 2 hours with our guidance

One of our most popular tuition topics, within a couple of hours you can walk away with a brand new wheel hand-made by you. Imagine that! Some of our previous customers have cycled literally half-way around the world on wheels they've built themselves (and perhaps just as importantly, they also had the knowledge to repair a wheel in the middle of nowhere if they encountered a large pot-hole).


The tuition session to lace, true and finish one wheel normally takes around 2 hours. If you want to learn about hub and rim measurements and spoke length calculations, add approximately another half-hour beforehand. If you're building a pair of wheels we normally suggest you have a go at building the second wheel at home yourself afterwards, and then book another half-hour session a few days later so we can help you with any problems, answer any questions, and help you finish the wheel. Or if you prefer we can build the second wheel during a tuition session as well, it's entirely up to you.


You are welcome to bring along your own hubs and rims if you like, or we can advise and supply something suitable after discussing your requirements. We keep a good range of spokes in stock so can normally supply these on the spot after calculating the required lengths.
