I’m keen to get my hands on every wheelbuilding reference in print. I’ve read:
- Barnett, John. Barnett’s Manual. Colorado Springs, Colorado. 8th edition 2012.
- Brandt, Jobst. The Bicycle Wheel. Palo Alto, California: Avocet. 3rd edition 1993.
- Musson, Roger. Professional Guide to Wheelbuilding. Preston, UK. 5th edition 2005.
- Schraner, Gerd. The Art of Wheelbuilding. Denver, Colorado: Buonpane Publications. 1999.
If you know of others, please let me know.
I definitely love books and reference material but, of course, study is no substitute for experience. That’s not too controversial but, on the other hand, sometimes people believe experience is a substitute for study, which I think is dangerous in its own way.
