February 25-26th Workshop – Basics of Wheel Building and Repair

ancient art, or is it science?

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.
*End time subject to change, as needed

Please register by sending an email to wrenchresource@gmail.com as space is limited.

Cycle of Giving 2016 – Now Only 2 Weeks Away!

Cycle of Giving 2016
The Cycle of Giving starts in 2 weeks! Over 200 volunteers will converge on Rossbrook House to repair up to 400 bikes for kids in need during one marathon 24-hour session.

Even if you’ve not worked on bikes before, we need lots of help cleaning bikes, making cards to go with every donated bike, and prepping food for hungry volunteers.

To sign up, or find out more information about volunteering, please email cycleofgiving2016@gmail.com

We’re also trying to raise $15,000 so that we can continue to run some of our amazing youth programs throughout the year, like the Earn-a-Bike program which teaches newcomer girls the basics of bike repair. Visit our Donate page to find out how you can help!
