Hey boys and girls, ever wanted to ride around town on some wheels you built yourself? Got a wonky wheel that's a bit untrue? 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 general wheel lover Lish Ng.
This three-day evening course will take place on Tuesday 21 August and Wednesday 22 August from 6 - 9pm. We have a follow up class on Tuesday 28 July from 6 - 9pm. Please make sure you can make all three dates.
Day one: How to calculate spoke length, how to lace a wheel
Day two: How to tension, true, and dish a wheel
Day three: Practice truing and dishing to complete your wheel.
There are only four (4) spaces available, so get them while they're hot!
We will provide all materials (hub, spokes, rim, nipples) and tools (wheel truing stands, spoke keys, dishing tools, nipple drivers), as well as tea, coffee and snacks. This course also includes annual LBK membership.
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.
