Wheel Building Workshop – January 23

Our January Workshop is Wheel Building.
wheel-building
January 23, Saturday, 12:30 PM.

Handbuilt wheels are much stronger and stay true much longer than factory build wheels. At this workshop, learn to build your own tough wheel! We will cover wheel anatomy and vocabulary, basic theory, lacing techniques and tensioning and truing. No experience necessary!

Build a wheel for the WRENCH or bring supplies to build your own wheel.

The workshop is free, but please register beforehand.
To register, or to get more information about the workshop or obtaining wheel building parts, please email info@thewrench.ca or call 204 296 3389.

Come on down to our next Volunteer Orientation!

Saturday January 9th at 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM

This is your chance to get to know what The WRENCH is all about, get a tour,  and ask questions.  If you stick around afterwards there will be opportunities to get your hands dirty!

Perhaps we’ll see you there.

The shop needs people to keep it tidy and some help has long been overdue.  We’ve got parts piling up and getting in our way.  What a great way to immerse yourself in an array of misc. bits you never knew existed!

Come one, come all.  Food and beverage will be provided.
