Pick this course if you both want to learn how to build wheels AND you want wheels, fine wheels. BOOM.
ANY wheels as well, not necessarily ‘Stayer’ carbon or alloy wheels. 

The full wheelbuilding experience. Including all of the usual wheelbuilding processes and the more specialist bits we do here like spoke cutting and threading, using a very fancy truing stand etc.
We will walk you through the entire process and your wheels will be perfect! 

So round, so straight, so perfectly tensioned.  

Be true to yourself
Come round to ours
Tweak the nipple of destiny
And leave your tension behind.
Enjoy four wheely good evenings of rotational bliss
And roll on the rest of your life 

Course length? 8 hours. Ideally in 2 hour slots and not much more as it’s quite a full-on thing to concentrate on for longer. 

When? We can work this out together. We can either do it during the daytime or evenings, or a mix. 

How many students? Well, probably just you. But you can also do this in group, maximum 3 people. The price is per person. One student means we can get on with some wheelbuilding ourselves, three students means continuous supervision. Hope that makes sense 🙂

What’s the process? Get in touch! and let’s chat some times and dates, just to be sure it’ll work out for everyone.

Components? These can be provided by Stayer which includes consultation for use, budget and compatibility. The rims and hubs can be from any brand. 

If you would like to build on Stayer carbon rims we will most likely need the specs finalised 4 weeks in advance of the course commencing so that we can be sure to have the stock available.

If you would like to provide your own components we will need the details (brand, model, hole count and use) in advance to check compatibility and suggest best spoke type and lacing pattern. And of course we can still help work out what you need. Do not panic.

Spokes and nipples are always supplied by Stayer.
