Build bicycle wheels the easy way

 

Easy build a bike wheel
We need spokes of the right length

 

Easy build a bike wheel
A hub, 36 nipples, rim and 36 spokes for our new wheel

 

Easy build a bike wheel
We start with nine spokes from the outside in the hub

 

Easy build a bike wheel
One spoke in a hole and one empty, about nine times

1: the place for the valve, 2: hole for spoke on the other side of the hub, 3: hole is on the right side for the spoke, 4 on the right side of the hub

 

Easy build a bike wheel
Place a spoke in the rim and a nipple every 4 holes

Important moment, now place a spoke in the right place on the other side of the hub

This spoke ends up here and a nipple on it

 

Easy build a bike wheel
Now put the remaining 8 spokes through the hub

And every 4 holes a spoke in the rim with a nipple on it

Then we get this result, 2 empty places (1 & 2), and 2 places with spokes (3 & 4)

On the side where we placed the last spokes, we are now going to place 9 spokes from the outside to the inside

 

Easy build a bike wheel
Push the spoke on the other side slightly upwards past the other spoke

 

Easy build a bike wheel
Turn this spoke to the left and move under the 2 first spokes and above the 3rd spoke to the rim

The spoke then ends up to the left of 2 other spokes

 

Easy build a bike wheel
Repeat this 9 times, now there is 1 space left in the rim every 3 spokes

 

Easy build a bike wheel
Place the remaining 9 spokes through the hub from the inside to the outside

 

Easy build a bike wheel
Move the first spoke to the right and place it above the first 2 spokes and below the 3 spoke, and place it in the rim.

 

Easy build a bike wheel
All spokes are now in place

 

Easy build a bike wheel
When we have chosen the correct length then tighten all nipples until the thread on the spoke is no longer visible

 

Easy build a bike wheel
And then we can start aligning the wheel.

 

Easy build a bike wheel
Now that the spokes are still tightening, you have it or you don't, is still a bit of a real specialty of the performer
