Great piece of kit, I've started checking wheel tension and truing - just cause it's so easy.
I bought some Ultegra wheels. My back wheel buckled very quickly. I was able to accurately true my wheel using this great bit of kit. So far no more problems. Very sturdy, well made. My only complaint is that there should be another slide indicator on the opposite side to save having to turn the wheel around.
Nice and solid for the most part, and usefully hefty (you can screw/clamp it to a workbench for stability, but its weight means it's hardly worth the effort). Easy to assemble, and will handle truing, dishing and roundness. The only slight issue is with the moveable pointer which is a bit sticky/jerky in its slide - but nothing insurmountable.
Solid build and easy to assemble. Looking at other reviews the sliding chrome arm is a little loose. Overcame this with a cut up plastic milk bottle (4 Pinter!) on two sides. This now sliders easy but is snug and without unnecessary play. Sorted.
Cracking little stand dead easy to build up needs bedding truing marker a little stiff at the moment. Look forward to building some wheels.
I have used the truing stand on 4 wheels so far (two 16 inch, two 26 inch) and found that it works fine; a lot easier than trying to true them while they are on the bike. The main problem during assembly was with the carriage bolts and nylok nuts holding the uprights to the base. They did not fit well and one bolt sheared off while I was trying to tighten it into place. Fortunately I had some carriage bolts (with ordinary nuts) which fitted much better and so I exchanged them all. The gauge is a bit low-tech but does the job well enough. Overall, good value for money for the occasional user.
Ideal wheel truing stand, wheels all round and true now, building a pair from scratch too. Very solid peice of kit would recommend
This is a really easy to use and handy piece of kit. Got loads of wheels and now its a really simple matter to get them trued up. Well worth having
