Learn to build a bicycle wheel from a rim, hub and spokes.

The BICAS wheelbuild class takes you step by step through the process of building a bicycle wheel. Learn how to customize that perfect wheel for your bicycle and understand how the bicycle wheel works!

Topics covered: 

  • Wheel anatomy and vocabulary
  • Basic Theory 
  • Measuring and calculating spoke length
  • Wheel lacing
  • Tensioning and trueing
This is the 1 day version of our Wheel building class. Class meets for 6.5 hours - running through the entire process of building a classic rear wheel from start to finish in one day. 

 

 The class is very small and hands on! Each student will learn how to build a practice basic rear wheel using BICAS materials. Each student will leave with worksheets and directions on how to repeat this process for their own customized wheel during BICAS open shop hours.
