Wheel Pro Building Course

Learn how to build perfect wheels by your hands


Help you build custom wheels

Nowadays, most bicycle wheels are made by machines. When compared with hand-built wheels by professional builders, in terms of quality, it couldn’t exceed hand-built wheels quality.

It’s not easy to be a professional, but wheel building itself is not so difficult. The only differences between professional and amateur are practice, concentration, understanding the whole process and foreseeing the interaction between components.

Through this course we can help you to fully understand the process and the interaction. And also through practice, we help your hands could remember the skills.


Wheel building and truing skills

By learning the skills of Custom Hand-built Wheels, you can build your own wheels with various combinations of rims, hubs, spokes, and nipples. You will also be able to true your own wheels properly.

This is important because any wheels, even high quality wheels, could be distorted even if you ride it for a long time. Moreover, you could get a higher understanding of wheel building much more than normal mechanics in shops.

For details, please see the curriculum below. We cover all the knowledge related to modern wheels and practices with various components.
