Hackney Wick workshop will host tutorial sessions on how to build a bike from scratch

8Ball Bikes launches build your own experience

From 2015, Hackney Wick’s 8Ball Bikes will offer an optional build your own training experience for those who buy a bike.

Under the supervision and guidance of owner James, buyers will be taught how to install the headset and bottom bracket; wll be guided through installing a crown race; taping up handlebars; putting rim tape, tubes and tyres on; installing wheels and adjusting brakes; and installing a chainring and crankset.

As a further perk of the £100 tutorial service, 8Ball will follow the hard work with a rewarding pint and a pizza in the Crate Brewery.
