Wheelbuilding class, November 10

Building and riding your own wheels can be a satisfying experience on its own, provides a valuable home-mechanic skill, and results in excellent quality wheels when done properly.

I will hold the class at the shop Saturday, November 10, 8am-Noon. The registration fee is $60, which is required to reserve your spot on a first-come, first served basis. Limited to 4 students. I will provide step-by-step instruction and a workspace equipped with a truing stand and spoke wrench for you to use during the class. Most people are able to build one wheel during the class, but others try to build a pair of wheels (I can help if you run out of time). You can supply your own rim(s), hub(s), and/or spokes, or you can get those items from HC for a discounted price with class registration.

Build up your dream touring wheels for next summer's adventures, or a dynamo wheel for winter commuting, or any other type of wheel(s) you may need.

 If you don't know which wheel components suit your needs, tastes, and budget, we will help with that, too. Space is limited to 4 registrants, so call 612-727-2565 or stop in to register and discuss options for your new wheels.
