Learn Wheelbuilding with RyanBuildsWheels.

*We love teaching but are currently putting our 1 to 1 Masterclasses on hold. Look out for our new format group classes to be announced in Autumn 2019!*

There’s nothing to stop you building your own wheels… Although learning can be a frustrating experience.

That’s where I can help.

After a day’s one-to-one tuition you will leave with a pair of wheels built to your specifications, a deep understanding of how and why they work, and with the joy of having used exactly the same tools and processes that I would use to build any of my own.

Typically we will each lace one of your wheels as this is the most time consuming task to handle and many students find having me physically demonstrating at the same time to be a great help.  After this the task of tensioning, truing and finally balancing a wheel takes place, after all the hard work a wondrously engineered structure awaits it’s first ride!

The cost of a day’s tuition (10am-6pm) is £200 plus the cost of components at my standard 10% off RRP.

Don't know what any of the below means? Don't worry! I'll be more than happy to help. Our 'Components' and 'Pricing' sections are work in progress but please read them first for a quick guide.

Please include:

-Rider weight in KG, any luggage that will be carried in addition, riding style and intended use, the bike you'll be using.
-Letting me know the axle standards you require is also very helpful; likewise which type of gearing system you use and the freehub standard you may require.
-Whether your bike is running rim or disk brakes and if disk whether you have a preference for 6-bolt vs Centrelock.
-Any components you've already been considering along with any aesthetic or performance considerations you'd like me to take into account.
