Wheel Building Workshop

February 22 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Build your own bicycle wheel set with master wheel smith, Jason Goods. This two day workshop teaches the principles of wheel physics & mechanics, the anatomy of a wheel, and the essential skills to build the perfect wheel:

  • How to calculate spokes
  • Proper lacing
  • Proper Truing and Rounding technique
  • Tensioning

Wheel Building workshops are limited to four participants, providing focused teaching and hands-on support.

In addition to the weekend workshop, you will schedule a private consultation prior to the workshop. We will help you select and purchase your wheel components (10 percent off parts purchased through Swift). Due to supply chain disruptions wheel parts can be hard to come by. We offer a discount on parts, but we may not be able to get everything for you, you may be asked to purchase things on your own. Don’t worry, we are here to help guide you through getting what you need.

Whether you’re looking for lightweight road wheels, a generator hub front wheel complete with integrated lighting, or a real sturdy set of rollers for your commute, you’re in amazing hands. Jason will guide you through the process of making a perfect set of wheels.

  • We tend to build 32 hole 3 cross wheels or wheels sets

This course is designed to fit into two sessions. For those who don’t complete their wheels, additional supervised build time may be scheduled, as needed, for $60 an hour. This surcharge applies for individuals who miss a session and want to make-up their session.

For private workshop bookings (minimum groups of 2 participants), please contact howdy@swiftadventure.co

Price: $305 + 10% off parts purchased through Swift. Class includes a consultation to get the right parts. You are welcome to supply your own.
