Wheelbuilding at Cycles for Change (Formerly Sibley Bike Depot) (June)
This class is designed as a complete introduction to the basics of wheel building. We are posting this class late, but if we have sufficient interest we will start the first class with lacing rims. The second class will entail bringing the wheel up to tension and truing it radially and laterally. It is okay if you don't understand what this means we will start at the beginning. No prior knowledge is necessary, however, it will be useful to understand the basics of truing.
We will be following Gerd Shraner's method feel free to peruse his book http://www.icelord.net/bike/ArtOfWheelbuilding.pdf
I am going to push this into January because not enough people registered in time. Please let me know if you would like to join us.

I have taught many of the classes. In addition I have a mostly useless degree in theory and spend a great deal of time thinking about how to be the best teacher I can be.
