Action speaks louder than words. This man has proven, a couple thousand times, that he builds wheels to last. Being a race wrench, some of his ways are clearly too much for an average commuter bike. But if you dare to enter the stratosphere of wheelbuilding and build wheels for athletes or world travellers, here's how.

I'll try to keep this short.

Despite being almost 10 years old, this book is far from out-dated.
Maybe some used rims might seem a little "old" but this can be transferred to todays materials without an problems

This book covers a pretty wide range of tips and tricks for the absolute beginner to the pretty advanced ones.
Nice to see, that this book starts at the very basics.
- What's the difference between hand-laced and machine-built wheels
- Basics about the materials
- What causes spoke failure
- How to lace a wheel
This book describes "Schraner's way of lacing". This might seem pretty awkward to those, that used the "classic way" but admittedly it's quite foolproof and pretty fast either.
This book isn't only for the beginner, even more advanced topics are covered.
- What type of components will suit your riding style
- Number of spokes
- Spoke patterns
- Which tools are needed
Even some more exotic topics are covered and Schraner gives his opinion about it:
- Twisted spoking
- Tying and soldering spokes
- "Exotic" spoking pattens (radial and "Crows Foot")
All that's written in pretty understandable words, even for the beginner I suppose.
Pretty much the perfect read for those, that wanted to start building their own wheels, or those, wit a little more experience, but who want to do do it perfectly and to think about virtually everything.

Leider scheint dieses Buch auf Deutsch vergriffen, oder, falls überhaupt erhältlich, unglaublich überteuert zu sein.

Really good wheel building book 16. Februar 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Spiralbindung
There are two well know wheel building books on the market. "The Bicycle Wheel" by Jobst Brandt is one, and the other is this book. While I like the Brandt book, I think this one is my favorite. Brandt's book is full of engineering explanation of how wheels work. I think that is important to know, but I want to know more about wheel building, not just the science behind wheels. Schraner's book concentrates more on actually building wheels and the sport of cycling. Also, the books physical form is easier to lay on a bench and use while actually building a wheel.

Definitive guide for beginners and pro builders 18. Juni 2001
Von Mark A. Schlueter - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Spiralbindung
With the most easy to follow directions, this book has helped a total novice become a sought after wheel builder. After building more that 30 sets in the last year, I still open the book and refer to various sections to "tighten" my technique. If you are simply a "bike freak" this makes for great reading. It helps you understand the importance of well built wheels.

Good Resource: Not a step-by-step 3. November 2006
Von Marc Genberg - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Spiralbindung Verifizierter Kauf
This is a great book to read to understand some of the concepts of wheelbuilding. It answers many of the "why" questions. It is not, however, a step-by-step guide on how to build a wheel. For instance, when attempting to build my first wheel, I wanted to know the best specific method for threading the spokes. This book does not include that and you must go elsewhere to get that information. Overall, a good augmentation to your detailed maintenance manuals.

Misinformation, unspecific, fluffy and stretched, poor translation 9. September 2007
Von A. Laframboise - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Spiralbindung
I don't understand someone could stand to read more than five pages of this book without feeling the overwhelming disappointment associated with knowing that he has just wasted his money.

First, the book is horribly translated. It's not so bad that the book is incomprehensible, but its bad enough that most people will find the reading extremely awkward.

Secondly, the book is very poorly edited and typeset. It's obvious that this book was very rushed. While I didn't notice spelling errors, there are many minor errors related to spacing and typeface. More importantly, many of the diagrams are unclear, and the pictures, although mostly color, are often blurry or poorly composed.

The book itself is mostly filler and fluff. The author starts out by disclaiming having any actual qualifications, and it goes downhill from there. It's very obvious that the author is stretching just to meet the magical 100 page mark. Some pages are nothing but rambling, somewhat disguised by the horrible translation.

Many parts of this book are completely unclear. For example, there's a section on corked wheels that I've re-read many times, and still don't understand; it doesn't explain what the benefit of corking is, or how one would do this, or even why he's mentioning it. There's an accompanying picture of a corked rim that's so poor I can't see what is intended.

This book lacks most of the specific advice that I suspect people are buying it for. For example, the author refuses to share the ordinary method for lacing wheels, on the grounds that it is "described so often in the bicycle press [that it] does not need to be described in this book too," instead recommending a VHS videotape from DT Swiss for this purpose.

The author's association with DT Swiss, which is not explicitly stated in the text, severely undermines his credibility. Much of the information that is interesting in this text is specific to the DT product line, some apparently directly copied from DT manuals.

In addition, much of the guidance the author offers is obsolete, dubious, or just plain wrong. This author repeats many common bicycle myths that have long been proven to be fallacies. He also recommends various outdated and obsolete practices, such as soldering and tying--which he describes in more detail than is present anywhere else in the book--that have been soundly discredited for use on modern bicycles.

There is very little in this book that is worthwhile reading, and so much misinformation. The fact that much of the book is confusing, incomprehensible, or inane is really just the icing on the cake. Since there is at least one excellent, definitive, and authoritative reference on the bicycle wheel, I can see absolutely no reason anyone would want to buy this book.

A good, but not great wheel building book 3. September 2011
Von Brian Nystrom - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Spiralbindung Verifizierter Kauf
I bought a copy of Jobst Brandt's "The Bicycle Wheel" when it was first published in '81 and got Roger Musson's "Professional Guide to Wheel Building" E-book a couple of years ago. I bought "The Art of Wheelbuilding" on a whim to complete my wheel building "library". Frankly, I'm somewhat disappointed. If I didn't own the other two books, I would probably regard this as a good wheel building guide, but in my opinion, the others are considerably better. I find that Schraner incorporates too much habit and tradition in his building for my taste. He seems more interested in name-dropping and touting his successes than in the science and technique behind building good wheels. While his stories are entertaining, I was expecting more "nuts and bolts" information and less fluff.

I don't regret buying "The Art of Wheelbuilding", but I wouldn't recommend it as a first wheel building reference. If you're technically oriented and want to understand the "why" behind building wheels rather than just the "how", "The Bicycle Wheel" is the book for you. "Professional Guide to Wheel Building" is the easiest to understand, the best illustrated, the most current and the least expensive of the three titles. I would recommend either of these - or better yet, both - over "The Art of Wheel Building".
