*** We’ll have a workshop on wheel building on December the 3rd! ***

Would you like to make a spare front wheel with a dynamo hub? Do you need to replace the rim of a wheel? Or perhaps you would just like to do something really fun during these gloomy pre-Christmas weeks? Then just sign up for our wheel building workshop, where you will build your very own wheel!

Being able to build you own can save you some money, and gives you more freedom to build whatever you want. But most of all it’s just fun to do and cool to ride on wheels your made yourself ūüôā

When: Tuesday 3rd of December 2019 18:00 – 21:00 PLUS one meeting time before and one after, see information below.
Where: Around Herttoniemi, will be communicated later
Who: No previous experience in wheel truing or bicycle mechanics needed!
Price: 40‚ā¨, including the use of necessary tools but no material included.

We aim to be with ca. 6 participants. The course will be given mainly in English but we’re happy to mix with Finnish/Swedish as much as possible.

This is a wheel building course for starters. We’ll cover enough theory so you’ll be able to build another wheel at home later, but no more than that.

Important: participants should visit shop to communicate what kind of wheel they would like to build. Please visit before the 15th of November, so we have enough time to order parts. You are free to bring your own material as well. 

During the workshop on 3.12 we will lace the wheels and bring the spokes to basic tension. 

Finally after the common workshop but during the same week, you will finalise the wheel using the truing stand. You can come any time during shop opening hours. This might take 1-2 hours for your first wheel. As I will be on sick leave from the 10th of December, the shop will mostly be closed for the rest of the month.
