At this point I have built somewhere between five and ten wheels, and they all held up very well. I myself have read Brandt and didn't like it much because of its more theoretical-technical approach.

For step-by-step instructions I have mostly relied on Sheldon Brown's and now John Allen's online instructions. Those I found sufficient yet not ideal: The instructions are obviously clear enough to have allowed me to build up a number of wheels over the years.

But it wasn't always a smooth process, for example several times I had to un- and re-lace wheels because the valve stem had ended up in the wrong spot. Musson's book is clearly written from a practical perspective, drawing from his experience as a professional wheelbuilder.

He often quips about how there are ways of doing things different from the ones suggested by him, but that more often than not they in the end all result in wheels that work.

After a quick introduction and outline of the book, the first substantive chapter discusses the different components of a wheel and the key concepts relevant to building a wheel. Supported by a number of helpful illustrations and photographs, I found this chapter to have just the right amount of detail both for first-time and more experienced wheelbuilders. Once again, the pragmatic approach becomes evident in the discussion of where to put pulling and pushing spokes, a topic that has inspired much heated discussion and little consensus over the years: For your first wheels lace them as Option A For your next set of wheels lace them as Option B.

If you are a disc brake user, then lace your third rear wheel as Option C By doing this you will understand how to lace the different options and have proof that they all work the same. Chapter 6 is probably the most unique among wheelbuilding books.

Here, Musson discusses the tools needed for building wheels. But not only does he discuss commercially available tools; he also provides detailed instructions how to build a nipple driver, a wheel dishing gauge, and even a truing stand. So far I have built the former two, and I agree with his assessment that they are equivalent or even superior to their commercial counterparts such as the Park Tool WAG-2 —and certainly much cheaper.

I have read similarly good things about the design of his truing stand and will probably build one myself at some point. Almost completed dishing gauge Determining the correct spoke lengths is discussed in its own chapter. Musson strongly advocates for not relying on manufacturers' numbers or ones found on the internet.

Hi, I'm Roger Musson, I mastered my craft through building and maintaining precision wheels for myself, and then as a highly respected professional wheel builder at Wheelpro. 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. This is all the information you'll ever need.

If you are paying me for something, then I make sure that what I tell you is absolutely correct. And if I discover something else, then I want to share it with you, and that's why I give a free upgrade to those of you who purchase a book.

I also listen to the feedback I get from purchasers of the book over the last 15 years, so I know your areas of difficulty and answered them. I've also got a Degree in Engineering, from the University of Aston in Birmingham, and worked in mechanical engineering at the Goss Printing Press company.

Reviews Search the web, or go to your favourite cycling forum and ask for a recommendation for a wheelbuilding book.I had accumulated the components over the past two months from various sources. Cheap hubs are never consid- ered.

The rims are the two components of a bicycle Rims with standard cross sections are usually suf- subjected to the highest loads. I always had my wheels built by Dave at Speed Dream, but the wheels I have built 3 sets now have stayed truer longer. Hubs From the aspect of a manual wheelbuilder, only hubs appropriate for the quality of our products are good enough. The thickness of the huh flange and the diameters of the spoke holes arc of primary importance for a Differentiating between a large flange hub and a good, durable road or mountainbike wheel.

In his words: All in all, Musson's book is excellent, and I wish I had bought it earlier in my wheelbuilding career.

But not only does he discuss commercially available tools; he also provides detailed instructions how to build a nipple driver, a wheel dishing gauge, and even a truing stand.
