When I started building wheels I had so many questions and was never sure I was doing it 100% correct. The free resources and other books served only as a basic introduction and left me wanting to know more. In my book I've answered those questions, filled in the missing parts, corrected their errors and gone even further, but it took many years of building and evaluating building techniques. I've also incorporated all the feedback I get from purchasers of the book so I know your areas of dificulty and answered them. Many years ago when I made the decision to build my own wheels I'd have willingly paid many times the asking price for the knowledge given in this book.
Dear Wheel Builder
Hi, my name's Roger Musson.
I'll get straight to the point.
If you want to build or maintain your own wheels, then you're faced with a simple choice:
- Be a hero and go it alone. Struggle for years to master the craft and, little by little, learn from your costly mistakes. That's the hard way. Or...
- Be smart and grab a copy of my Wheel Building e-book and gain complete access to the knowledge of one the most respected professional wheel builders. Does it get any easier than that?
This is a lifetime's wheel building experience, distilled into a book that covers EVERYTHING wheelbuilding. I keep nothing back. I walk you through exactly how to build the perfect wheel. When you've finished reading, you'll know as much as I do - and you'll have mastered that knowledge in a fraction of the time. And that's at the heart of what I'm about to teach you - the easy way of doing things.
I've taught thousands of people how to build wheels.
Additionally, this book is for anyone who wants to appreciate what a good wheel should be like, whether you build one or not. Do you believe that your wheels need retensioning? are you often getting them re-trued? Both of these are false statements. Most shop bought wheels are built to a price and most builders don't know what goes into a good wheel and you end up sorting out the problems once you've ridden them. Armed with the knowledge of what makes a good wheel you can take a fresh look at your purchase and rectify the problems.
Many people have said that it's the best money they've ever spent on a cycling related product.
Who am I?
I'm a professional wheel builder with a BSc. (hons) Degree in Production Engineering from the University of Aston Birmingham. I'm based in Preston, UK, where I own and build the wheels at the famous wheel building shop, Wheelpro.
I'm still active in the wheelbuilding business and picking up useful information all the time.
I mastered my craft through building and maintaining precision wheels for myself as an amateur and then as a professional for Wheelpro customers, including super-strong wheels for professional downhill MTB race teams. At this level only the best is good enough. Mistakes simply aren't an option.
As a sponsor of professional bike teams, I've spent years at the sharp end of competitive cycling - out in the field. Rain or shine, I've watched as my wheels were pounded hard by professional racers, studied how they've performed against other people's wheels; gained an unrivalled reputation for building and repairing crash damage and providing total support.
I've run wheel-building courses and been invited to deliver wheel-building demonstrations at cycle shows by component manufacturers.
I've built so many wheels and evaluated so many wheel components and building techniques that I've stopped counting. But over the years I've come to know what I like and dislike, what works and what doesn't. There's no guesswork in anything I do. I deal only with the facts. And now I've decided to share my knowledge.
This is a wheelbuilding e-book in pdf format
You can read it on screen or print it (it's designed to print on US Letter or A4).
There are well over 100 pages of information but you are not obliged to print everything. For example many people will just print the building section so they have to hand whilst building a wheel and use the on-screen pdf as a reference for everything else. The choice is yours. I use a black and white laser printer and it's all done pretty quick. Also, if you accidently spill a coffee over your book you just reprint the pages!
Make your own wheelbuilding tools and save a LOT of money!
My book includes details of all the wheel-building tools I use.
As a professional wheel builder I can afford to buy whatever tools I like, no matter how expensive. So you'll be surprised to learn that I prefer to make my own. They're better and they make the job easier and in my book I'll show you just how simple it is. My truing stand is fast becoming a design classic!
People are consistently delighted with my book and I'm certain that you will be too. In fact I'm so confident that you'll find my book indispensable that I'm offering you an unconditional 60 day guarantee:
Buy my book. And if for any reason you don't like it - any reason whatsoever - simply contact me and I'll refund your money - in full. No questions. No quibbles.
That's as fair as it gets.
