Martin Müller builds a wheel from generic mass-produced materials. Yet it is only with technical knowledge combined with skilled use of tools that a builder can make a tough and straight wheel that will run for miles and miles. A custom-built wheel set made by a trusted wheelbuilder is a necessity for many serious cyclists, so this hundred-year old tradition is as important as ever.

Used as part of the V&A exhibition 'Power of making' Autumn 2011.
