This is a practical workshop where you learn how to assemble, true and optimise bicycle wheels using proven techniques based on sound principles. I concentrate on teaching you how to build strong and durable wheels of ’standard’ (eg. cross-3) pattern. Radial, mixed and other exotic lacing patterns are not demonstrated, but the skills you learn provide the best foundation for attempting them later if you wish.

Whether you simply want to replace an occasional broken spoke, true existing wheels or hand build a complete wheel, this workshop gives you the knowledge, skills and confidence you need in a controlled environment. I restrict class size to ensure a high teacher-student ratio.
