Wheel Building Classes

Citybikes Cooperative has scheduled two Wheel Building classes for the Fall Season. The class is comprised of three sessions which are each 3 hours long.

For the class you’ll first choose your materials with guidance, complete a spoke calculation with your rim and hub and learn how to lace and build your wheel to completion.

All classes are hands on, experiential education style with 2 staff members.

Cost: $75 tuition + the cost of spokes, Citybikes will assist you with choosing your hub and rim (if needed)
