    Edinburgh Bicycle Co-op One-Day Wheel Building Course

    Learn how to build your own bicycle wheels. Imagine that!

    Given that our slogan is The Revolution Will Not Be Motorised, it should go without saying that we have a passion for wheel building. It's a skill we enjoy sharing, hence this course. If our Cycle Maintenance Course is like getting your degree in bicycle mechanics, the Wheel Building Course is your PhD.

    • On this one-day course, you will be shown how to lace, build and true a pair of wheels under the guidance of an Edinburgh Bicycle mechanic.
    • You will be lent hubs, spokes and rims, and you will spend the day building them into a pair of wheels.
    • It's a magical experience.
    • Having practiced under the supervision of an Edinburgh Bicycle Co-op wheel builder, you will then have the confidence to build and/or true your own wheels at home.
    • You will be given a course handout to take away with you, so you needn't worry about forgetting any the wheel building steps and techniques explained on the course.
    • Single-day course: usually 10:00 - 17:30
    • Lunch (provided by Edinburgh Bicycle) included in the price.
    • To find out more about this course, phone 0345 257 0808 or 0131 331 5010 (if your telephone service provides 'free' minutes to 01, 02 numbers etc.), visit one of our shops, or e-mail

    Ask a question
    Q. Would it be possible to take along parts for a pair of wheels and build them both in the day. I know a fair bit about bikes, and have trued wheels in the past, but don't have a truing stand or tension meter so would like to do it under supervision.
    A. It is no longer or policy to allow customers to build their own wheels and take them away for riding. On attending the course we will provide tuition, the necessary tools as well as rims, spokes & nipples and hubs. You will receive a course handout on completion of the course to remind you and offer guidelines if you would like to build more wheels at a later time.
