Dan Foley coming through with a new How To video for you. This time around he gives you a run through out how to build a 36-hole BMX wheel. 36-Spoke wheels have become the industry standard, so unless you’re running some burly Bone Deth wheels, you most likely have a 36-spoke setup. Hit play to let Dan teach you everything from how to drop the spokes in, what the 3-cross pattern looks like and then how to true the wheel in. Hit play and take it all in! Great tutorial.

“Lacing a wheel isn’t as hard as you may think. Building the wheels that’ll roll underneath you for months to come is a rewarding feeling to say the least. Learn in less than 7 minutes, then lace your next pair yourself.
This is how to build a 36 spoke, 3 cross wheel. The parts of the wheel are a Madera Pilot V2 front hub, a Cult Match rim, and Animal spokes/nipples.
