The Art Of Wheelbuilding: A Bench Reference For Neophytes, Pros & Wheelaholics Reviews
Excellent book. Lays out in simple terms a complex procedure... I love my new wheels!
[Skim read, 2014-09-30] I like the conversational tone and perspective, but anticipate I'll need it beside me to make good use thereof.[Full read, completed 2015-02-22, as I near the end of a wheelbuilding workshop series] Overview is good. Could separate theory, concepts, and physics from the procedure. Unsure why sometimes a single or two options were presented. Are there not more ways to conceptualize these ideas? Are there not more materials? Possibly, wheels building is well standardized.
Great how to guide! This is how I learned to build wheels. Schraner has a real simple lacing pattern and a very efficient process for building wheels. When I worked at a bike shop, this book was passed around, and we all used his lacing method. Plus he drops this pearl of wisdom about the youth today rolling their spokes, "It's better to have them rolling spokes than rolling joints" Word.
For a reference book a surprisingly good read. So for me now the only way forward to to build my own.
Short and to the point; would consult again before seriously contemplating building my own wheel.
great reference manual that you can refer to time and time again when building wheels.easy to read and very useful
