Wheel building

London Bike Hub Wheel Building

Our advanced maintenance course covers wheel truing, but if you’re serious about your wheels, then this £90 one-day course at our Greenford workshop is for you (the next course runs on the 23rd of September, 2017).

Starting with building a wheel from scratch you will be taught all aspects of wheel mechanics, from spoke choice and tools through to truing and dishing.

Student numbers are kept low, and you’ll be given the chance to build a wheel from our own resources, or bring your own parts and build a wheel to keep. If you’d like to do the latter, please let us know at least a week or two before the class starts, so our expert wheel-builder knows what to expect. If you need guidance on which components might be best for your build, do please feel free to contact us, again leaving plenty of time before the start of the class to ensure any delayed orders arrive in time.

There’s lots of hands-on time, as you would expect from one of our courses, as well as supervision and information to take away with you at the end of the day. We also have refreshments to help keep your brain focused on this tough but rewarding skill.

Students are welcome to return and pay a small fee to use our wheel-building equipment after the initial course, or for refresher sessions when the main wheel-building course is not running.
