Event Details

Wheel building is a great skill to learn and not nearly as hard as some people would have you believe! On this course you will be taught how to turn rims, hubs and a bunch of spokes into strong, reliable wheels, as we guide you, step-by-step, through the techniques of lacing, tensioning and truing a bicycle wheel. We'll also look at tools for the job and how to measure spokes and select other components. No previous experience or particular mechanical brillliance is required. Lots of help and guidance on hand with class size limited to 8.

The course is run from our professionally equipped community workshop with all tools and parts supplied. All you need to bring is yourself. 

Cost includes lunch and refreshments throughout the day.



What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

If you don't arrive by bike (which we'd obviously recommend) then there's free parking outside the workshop on Ayr Street. The High School tram stop is 400m away and the NCT turquoise bus service (77-80) stops closer still on Alfreton Road.

What can/can't I bring to the event?

Nothing but yourself. Please don't bring your own wheels or parts. You'll only be using stuff we supply (which you'll return to us at the end of the day). This is a hands-on practical course so come in comfortable clothing that you don't mind getting dirty!

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

For more information or advice please Tom or Anthony on 0115  9792433 or email us on
