FCW Bike School: Wheel Truing and Hub Overhaul

  • Franklinton Cycle Works 897 West Broad Street Columbus, OH, 43222 United States (map)

Ever noticed a wobble in your wheel? It happens to all of us but its generally not that difficult to fix. How about a wheel that no longer spins freely or smoothly? No biggie; we'll teach you how to fix that. In this class, you'll learn the process of tightening and loosing spokes to bring your wheel back into tru; get rid of the wobble. And you'll learn how to take about your wheel hubs, clean them, and re-grease them so they spin like butter again. 

Students are encouraged to bring their bikes to class but if you'd prefer to practice on a shop bike, we'll be more than happy to provide one at no additional cost.
