Nice. I won’t be able to stay beyond 8:30pm, so will start wheel workshop at 7:30pm. It would be optimal if we can use the projector so I can have additional visual aids to demonstrate the different steps.
If you’d like to build a wheel from scratch, please ensure you have the correct parts. If you’d like to true or disassemble (and hopefully reassemble) an existing wheel, bring it along.
If there’s several of us, each person will want a spoke key to be able to tighten/loosen their spokes. Not to recommend Amazon but this £5 key from BBB is a good tool. It’s actually a good investment to have for a home toolbox, as a wheel true on the high street is ≈£15 these days. https://www.amazon.co.uk/BBB-Unisexs-BTL-15-Cycling-Turner/dp/B00116OK0S/ref=asc_df_B00116OK0S/ . Please no one buy the spoke keys that are a circle with many cuts in the perimeter, they’re almost always poorly sized and only end up rounding the (square) spoke nipples. If someone needs to order parts or professional calibre Park Tool, Pedros, or DT Swiss tools, I can offer a discount via my bike business.
@asander1 I have 2 professional truing stands we can use for the eve, but I’d need a ride to move them to and from the space, can we work something out? Also would be great if we can get the parts washer running in time for the evening, I’ll check the cleaning fluid prices and get back to you.
