No matter how loudly I shouted this at the mechanic in the bike shop, he couldn’t make my front wheel any less egg-shaped. So I took the wheel to master wheelbuilder, Ian Lynch, and it came back round.
Ian – or “Ianardo da Lynchi” as he is widely known, has kindly agreed to entertain and educate us at the next Club Night, 8.30pm on Friday, 4th October at All Saints Church Hall, Chapel Lane, Farnborough GU14 9BW.
Learn about tubed, tubeless and tubular tyres, aerodynamics and wheel components and the basics of truing your own wheels. Ride straight, ride true, never get a puncture again. And if that’s not enough, beer, chips and soft drinks provided as usual.
