  • Proper lacing

Wheel Building workshops are limited to four participants, this provides focused teaching and hands-on support.

In addition to the weekend workshop, you will schedule a private consultation prior to the workshop. We will help you select and purchase your wheel components (10% off parts purchased through Swift). Whether you’re looking for lightweight road wheels, a generator hub front wheel complete with integrated lighting, or a real sturdy set of rollers for your commute, you’re in amazing hands. Jason will guide you through the process of making a perfect set of wheels.

This course is designed to fit into two sessions. For those who don’t complete their wheels, additional supervised build time may be scheduled, as needed, for $60 an hour. This surcharge applies for individuals who miss a session and want to make-up their session.
