This Level 4 bike maintenance course is part of our Fix it yourself suite. It is also a recommended add-on to our Velotech courses.

Building your own bicycle wheels can bring a great sense of satisfaction. It also adds a bit of artistry to the repertoire of the bike mechanic.

During our one-day course, you will learn how to:

  • calculate spoke lengths
  • assess lacing options
  • tension spokes correctly
  • dish front and rear wheels

We will provide all the tools and parts for this wheel building course. You can choose whether to build a 26 inch mountain bike wheel or a 700C road bike wheel.

At the end of the day, you will have the option of buying your finished wheel to take with you.
