Sunday Service: Wheels


Wheels - This is the ONLY workshop of the year on wheels. It is a bit on the technical side: to satisfy the need for more knowledge.

How to build a wheel; true a wheel; make it round; calculate spoke lengths; smooth out bumps inside your drum brake. When can't a wheel be saved? Why are good spokes important? How and why to dish a wheel. How to make or true an unconventional (single-sided) wheel. Replacing wheel bearings.

Come with a thirst to learn.

Caffeine and morning snacks provided. Workshop starts when the caffeine kicks in. Cost: FREE
