It’s the perfect time to be a new volunteer at the Wrench. Programming is in full swing, the days are getting longer, and yet the tempo of mid-winter remains. Come get acquainted with the space, the people, bike repair, and what being a volunteer at the Wrench is all about this Saturday, March 4th, 1 – 2pm.
At long last, the return of last year’s most popular workshop – Wheel Building! To better cover the topic, this workshop is being extended into a series. The first part is tailored to the very beginning steps of wheel building: theory, nomenclature, materials, measuring, and lacing. The second part covers vertical and horizontal truing, tensioning, dishing, stress relief, and finishing.
The cost for the workshop is $20, unless you bring your own wheel build materials – rim, spokes, and hub.
The first workshop runs from 12:30 to 2:00 on Saturday, February 25th.
The second workshop runs from 12:30 to 2:00* on Sunday, February 26th.

Is your bike tired of the freeze-thaw cycle? Are your hubs making more noise than the horn and bell you normally honk and ding with? Has your bike’s colour scheme changed to a shade of bright orange-red? You might have a case of the winter blahs affecting your travel companion.
Find out how to dispel the Winter spectre that’s haunting your ride with our Winter Repair & Maintenance workshop. Join us at the WRENCH this Saturday at 12:30.
