At Royal Dutch Gazelle we produce 275,000 bikes per year. Of course that means we need twice as many wheels.
This is more than 500,000 wheels. We put these wheels together ourselves in our factory.
First we guide the spokes into the right place in the wheel. Next we apply pressure to the wheel which makes the spokes position themselves properly and to be sure of a smooth smooth ride we tighten the spokes to true the wheel.
We do this until we are sure the wheel is perfectly round. The final step is the tire, we pump up the inner-tube, fit the tire and then each wheel is good to go.
