Roger Musson Wheel Building Book

Alternatively, any recommendations for wheel building courses in London or the NW? I also have it on an iPad, but musosn, concrete floors, grubby hands and slippery tablets do not make good partners. Originally Byilding by Mike T. For example choose four spokes eg in bui,ding adjacent crossed pairs and from the same starting roegr do the following; 1 tighten all four, one full turn 2 loosen all four, one full turn 3 loosen the LH spokes one turn, tighten the RH spokes one turn Actually building wheels is only a little more complicated than the above; with practice you will just get faster and better at it.

Then turned the page to find the wee add on bit about “by the way, if you’re building a rear, disc wheel you need to do things a teensy bit different. I did my dropouts with a 10mm drill bit for the shap and then cutting out and taking the sharp edges off the sides to make a ‘u’ with a dremel.

A great cheap stand Posted 8 years ago. Last edited by mig on 3 May9: Rose bikes used to be good for spokes although I haven’t checked for a while, All the best, Simon.

I took my time, and found some patience from somewhere. Can’t go wrong with free. I have never used a metal one but one of the things the Musson book says is that a wooden one mans its easier to hear the spokes when you ‘tune’ them.

To owners of Roger’s book — does the DIY truing stand detailed in the book require metal-shaping beyond what’s achievable with a file and a hacksaw or is it pretty straightforward? Cheers Stevomcd, thought it might be that. Spoke length calculation is a pain but Phillip has put a spoke length calculator and details of how to buy the book direct at http: This means that the spokes on the outside of the flange which apparently do more of the work are the ones which are stretched by the braking forces and therefore resist said forces better.


I think if you use quality components and follow his guidance you’ll start knocking out decent wheels in no time. Reply With Quote 10 Mike T. Mike T’s home wheelbuilding site – dedicated to providing Newby wheelbuilders with motivation, information and resources.

IMHO it is essential that serious cycletourists build their own wheels. Originally Posted by TomBrooklyn.

By clydeone in forum Wheels and Tires Replies: Initially I would be using its expertise to help me true wheels properly, progressing to full builds later.

It gives a clear explanation of how to build wheels, going into the complexity of crossing patterns, spoke drillings and rim choice without trying to blind with science. I’ll put in a good word for Jobst Brandt’s book too.

Cycling Book Review “A Practical Guide to Wheelbuilding.” by Roge

Viewing 19 posts – 1 through 19 of 19 total. Roger’s take on it is that it’s a small theoretical difference and it doesn’t really matter. Eheel see some very minor changes in the 7th which are mostly rewording – at least the parts that are relevant to me.

It’s my one slight criticism of the book — even though it’s been updated well and covers a lot of very modern components, there are a few places where it could do with being re-written so that the modern stuff is the “normal” way and the more archaic stuff is the optional extras. Roger puts wjeel the new equipment info as it comes out. If you already bought a previous edition, all updates are FREE.


Uhh can’t you tell I’m from and era that pre-dates the laptop and musaon tablet? Originally Posted by Lombard.

I came across the book having been building my own wheels for many years self taught in pre-internet days but I would have thought a rogsr could get good results using it as a guide.

I bought the book and built the Musson stand from mdf. I found the book easy to read and use. Big wood screw in middle. Join Date Sep Posts Thank mhsson for the heads up. My first was Roger’s 6th – relative n00bie here.

Based on advice on here, from Brucey, I rebuilt it with new spokes and tightened it further. Seem to remember hearing before that the “dropouts” are a bit tricky without access to some beefier tools. Reply With Quote 4 Mike T. Had it trued, tensioned, was pretty happy with it. I also built the stand to his plan, though I now have a Park Wneel model.

I would in no way class myself a ‘wheelbuilder’ and would have to refer to the book again for future builds but it goes to prove it is purely a mechanical operation, there is no mystique involved.

I was reminded of Roger’s book when googling for NW courses – turned up Roger in Preston but I gather that after a brief foray into running classes he has stopped them. Wonder if that does spokeless wheels too?
