One moment please...
Wheel Building

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 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.


All classes are pay-what-you-can. No students will be denied access due to lack of funds.
