You could be *this* happy!

We’re looking to do a one-night wheel building class sometime during the first week of in mid-April. We need 4 more people.

More information on the class is here. Please read this info before signing up.

But in a nutshell, it’s $25. You must buy wheel bits though to build up. Here are some example wheel prices. These are for rear wheels. Just as examples.

The budget do-all build:

Sun cr-18 rim: $28
wheelmaster straight gauge spokes, brass nipples: $20
deore LX or Tiagra rear hub: $45
total: $93

The slightly fancier, lighter build:

velocity synergy rim:$68

105 hub: $62
total: $180

The cheap bling fixed gear build:

velocity deep v colored/bling rim: $80
wheelmaster 14 gauge black spokes: $25
origin 8 black track/freewheel hub: $45
total: $150

Once, when asked his opinion on organizational capacity, John Henry responded by indicating that he could build us a shelf for that.

Chain: Guarded

In the wake of financial catastrophe, a multi-million dollar public works project has allowed us to erect a convenient system of symbols, or signs,  indicating the location and quality of our services.

Now that you can find us so easily it must be mentioned; we can only help you fix half your bike.

Well, we did that already, but I found a nice roll on the road today. So come in to tune your bike and get some free one inch strips! (or in smaller widths too, we have scissors.)
