More Details
“Jason's wheel building workshop was phenomenal. I went into the class with zero wheel building or maintenance experience, and by the end of the workshop I had built two wheels from scratch, and I feel like I have a great handle on how to true and maintain wheels in the future. Worth every penny! - L.B.”

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). Due to supply chain disruptions wheel parts can be hard to come by. We offer a discount on parts, but we may not be able to get everything for you, you may be asked to purchase things on your own. Don’t worry, we are here to help guide you through getting what you need.

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.

  • We tend to build 32 hole 3 cross wheels or wheels sets
