Wheel Building 101 – Session I
February 20, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Learn how to assemble the hub, spokes and rim to “build” a front wheel. The wheel will be laced with 32 spokes in a three-cross spoke pattern. We will have several “practice wheels” for you to use. You may want to build a front wheel for your own bicycle. You can learn a lot from riding a wheel you have built. For answers regarding the proper size wheel for your bicycle, please call Bill Prall (231) 838-0741. Prall has built over 1,000 bicycle wheels for racing, touring and mountain biking, and has developed a simple method for lacing the spokes from the hub into the rim.
Class will be held over two weeks: Wednesday, February 20th and Wednesday, February 27th from 6:30PM to 8:00PM at the Top of Michigan Trail Center, 1687 M 119, Petoskey. Class size is limited and offered free to current supporting members of the Trails Council. Not a member yet? You can take care of that HERE.
Call or text Bill Prall (231) 838-0741 to register, or contact him with any questions you may have about this class.
