The art of wheel building is easy to understand when broken down to individual pieces. We also demystify spoke length calculations by using free programs on the net. Wheel lacing is just weaving patterns, When you can understand how to look at symmetry in the evolving pattern then it is easy to lace a wheel. Tightening spoke nipples to make a wheel round, dish, and true all are about learning to see movement of the rim when you tighten or loosen a nipple. When you can see the amount of movement you want to create then you have learned a new Hand/Eye coordination art.
Everyone I have taught has been successful in building a better wheel than any they have purchased. You can make a safer, stronger, longer lived wheel, easily in this class.
