If you're serious about building wheels then my book is essential reading. This illustrated book shows you everything I do as one of the most respected professional wheel builders. I hold nothing back. In just a few minutes from now you'll be on your way to building your own professional quality wheels - or your money back!
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 The free resources and other books served only as a basic introduction, were often out of date and left me wanting to know more. In my book I've answered those questions, filled in the missing parts and gone even further. I also listen to all the feedback I get from purchasers of the book so I know your areas of dificulty and answered them.
This is a lifetime's wheel building experience, distilled into a book that covers EVERYTHING wheelbuilding. I keep nothing back. 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.
Who am I?
I'm Roger Musson, a professional wheel builder with a mechanical engineering background gained at the Goss printing press company and a Degree in Production Engineering from the University of Aston in Birmingham. I'm based in the UK where I'm the owner of the wheel building shop, Wheelpro.
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 cycle 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.
For more reviews go to your favourite cycling forum and ask for a recommendation for a wheelbuilding book. I guarantee you'll get a recommendation for the book because it's in use world-wide by thousands of cyclists. Here are just a few of them...
There's no contest here IMO. Roger Musson's wheelbuilding e-book is the best.
Firstly let me say its the best book I have ever read on wheel building and would highly recommend it to anybody.
One of my favourite bike purchases ever.
Over 150 people share their experiences of building wheels using the book.
It is well set out, easy to read and inexpensive considering the amount of knowledge contained in it.
I would recommend the wheelbuilding book by Roger Musson which has enabled me to build a number of stong wheels.
I purchased Roger Musson's e-book and have never looked back. I always had my wheels built by Dave at Speed Dream, but the wheels I have built (3 sets now) have stayed truer longer.
This wooden truing stand is pretty sweet, and elegant to boot.
I've built loads of wheels now and this is the best guide I've come across by a country mile.
I could upload the photo from the wheelpro wheelbuilding book (which shows cutaways of the different length dt nipples), but i am not gonna rip off the guy that helped me so much with learning to build wheels.
If you've not built wheels before I can heartily recommend that book as being about the clearest, simplest guide to wheelbuilding you'll ever find.
This will be the finest £9 pdf you will ever download and he will take you through everything you need to make your own wheels.
This is a fantastic book,well worth the money. Helped me build two wheels that have remained true for many, many miles. Seconded, Roger built my wheels and they got their first true in 10 years last week. Guy knows what he's up to.
The wheels I built with it are still true several large potholes... I'd second Greg's recommendation for Roger Musson's book - really very good.
I would even go so far as to suggest that if you aren't able to build a wheel after reading it, I wouldn't bother even trying.
This book is only available from this website, it is not sold anywhere else.
