Make the best of the winter by learning how to build your own wheels. Students will learn the theory behind wheel building; lace together a hub, spoke, and rim; properly tension all spokes; and finally true the wheel.
Students will have the option of practicing on wheels provided by Bike Works or building a wheel(s) to keep. If you would like to buy supplies to build your own set of wheels please call the shop as soon as you register!
Price is pay-what-you-can. Suggested tuition of $120, or $175 “pay-it-forward” to support another student (see Class Tuition section below).
Class will meet at the Bike Works Warehouse (3715 S Hudson St) on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-9 PM**.
Start date: Tuesday 12/7.
End date: Thursday 12/16.
This class is for adults age 18 and up.
*Bikes are carefully screened and distributed from Bike Works' inventory. After the bikes are checked, they will go to youth and adults in our Bikes-for-All program in SE Seattle. If you are interested in learning to work on your own bike, please stay tuned for future class offerings or contact email@example.com about Open Shop.
**Because Bike Works wants to limit the number of people in its spaces during COVID-19, please do not arrive earlier than 10 minutes before the class. Free and paid parking is available in Columbia City, and limited bike parking is available indoors.
