Wheel Building $125 (plus component costs)
Learn the fine art of bicycle wheel building. Elevate your skill and the performance of your bicycle with a custom made, hand built new set of wheels. This three-session course will take you through the whole process. In session 1, you will learn theory and choose components based on your riding style and performance goals. Session 2 will be lacing your new hubs and rims with your choice of lacing pattern and spokes. And in session 3, it will all come together with tensioning and truing technique, where a hand built wheel truly stands out. This class is not for everyone, but if you want to become an integral part of what makes your bike better, and improve the performance and durability of your wheels, the way to do it right is to do it yourself. Availability of this class is limited, and dates will be set based on demand. Please contact our Service Manager, John, by email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you feel up to the challenge.
Sign up for these classes can be done by phone (216-521-7746), or you can email John, again at email@example.com. Classes need to be prepaid, at which point we will order your course materials. Refunds on tuition will be refundable up to 7 days prior to your class, with course manuals being non-refundable.
A minimum class size will need to be met for each date to go forward. In the event that this minimum is not met, dates will be cancelled and/or combined. If you are signed up for a cancelled date, you will be notified of any such change and given the option of moving dates or accepting a refund on any tuition or materials already purchased. If any of this is too confusing, these classes probably aren't for you, anyway. ;)
