    Any recommendations for a wheelbuilding class in the Milwaukee area?

    Howdy fellow Wisconsinites/Midwesterners,

    Like the title suggests, I'm entertaining the thought of taking a wheelbuilding class in the near future. The topic came up when I stopped by Cory the Bike Fixer the other day, seems like a good idea. I've got a truing stand and can true my own wheels to within a reasonable tolerance (a few millimeters at worst, 1-2 mm at best depending on the wheel), but think it might be beneficial to actually sit through and take notes on the entire wheel building process with someone who does it for a living. I imagine it will pay for itself, both in terms of reduced cost and improved quality of wheels I get for my dollar. At this point, I'm thinking Cory's class will be the one I'll take given that I like the guys in that shop and it's reasonably close by. However, I wonder if anyone has taken a similar class in the area that they could provide feedback on. Any suggestions/advice welcome.

    Thanks!
