The MADE Show was fantastic. So glad to see so many inspired builders of frames and wheels!

Noble Lacing Stand


One of the most fun devices in all of wheel building, a lacing stand simplifies and speeds wheel assembly. Sure, experienced builders can lace in their laps. Experienced jugglers can keep three balls aloft while cooking an omelette. Make your lacing a fun, not awkward, stage of the build. This stand is awesome to use and a handsome centerpiece of the craft. More than one hundred are in use by top builders in North America.

Stands to assist lacing have been used for a century, freeing hands and speeding assembly. Early in his building career, Jonny Bell (Noble Wheels, London) noticed that commercially available stands were often crude iron jigs, seemingly from the 19th century.

He went to work and today his lacing stand is found in one hundred custom wheel shops. The design has evolved with his own experience and feedback from colleagues.
