ASGBought this to true a couple of wheels on the grounds that it would pay for itself pretty quickly based on the state of the roads in and around Milton Keynes. I have used this to true a couple of wheels so far and its been great. Its slightly unstable when there is no wheel fitted, tending to topple forward due to weight of alignment gauges, but once a wheel is fitted its very stable. Its not self centering, in fact the instructions explicitly state "On side shaking truing job, you use either right or left side gauge. You will not use both gauges at once." and go on to show you how to lock out either one of the "side shaking" gauges. So you will need to use a dishing tool or figure out how to ensure that the gauges are centered correctly before relying on it for centering. I've seen that mine is about 3mm off center but not had the time to look into sorting this out yet but can't imagine it would be too difficult. I like the fact that it folds up neatly for storage out of the way when not in use. Ticks all the boxes for my needs and I would recommend.
LeithgoonerThis worked really well to true a very messd up wheel. Going to try to build one next. Very happy with product and the price on Merlin was almost half the price everywhere else. Free delivery in less than 48h from order. Perfect!
RobWorks well. Far nicer and more convenient than using an upended bike. You need to be fairly gentle with it i.e its not a heavyweight metal monster. The guages alow precise assessment and have easy adjustment. A home mechanics luxury.
