    Bike mechanics workshops in Toronto

    I'm going to take the Wenches with Wrenches course from CBN next month, but I'm wondering if anyone's teaching wheelbuilding on a regular basis. CBN had a course in June but it doesn't look like it's something they do often. Is there anyone else doing these kinds of workshops?

    I just received the "Continuing Education" flier today from the Toronto District school Board and they are offering a bicycle repair course covering "all aspects of bicycle repair".

    For more info go to www.learn4life.ca

    I did the continuing education course and I think you'll be disappointed with it if you've already done a mechanic's course and want to learn how to build wheels specifically. That course is geared towards someone who knows basically nothing about bikes. It gears up towards bb repack, hubs, headset, and a little truing near the end but not really any further than that.

    It is a really good course and great value if you are just starting out however. Nani is a cool guy who knows an awful lot about bikes. I learned a few things from him that I have not since heard anyone touch on.

    I'm sure you could convince someone at cbn to help you learn how to build if you put in some volunteer hours.
