This article will review selecting the correct wrench for bicycle spoke nipples.
This article will discuss the truing of the common spoked bicycle wheel.
This article will discuss the use of the TM-1 Spoke Tension Meter.
This article will review the use of the WAG-4 Wheel Dishing Gauge and the WAG-5 Wheel Dishing Gauge. For procedures on wheel truing see Wheel Truing. The dishing gauge procedures between the two tools are similar in concept.
The Wheel Tension App (WTA) is a web-based tool that will produce spreadsheets and a visual diagram to help analyze relative tension between spokes (figure 1). Designed to work only with the TM-1 Spoke Tension Meter from Park Tool, the WTA can help you achieve a wheel with consistent spoke tension. It is also useful when diagnosing wheel tension issues or documenting wheel truing results.
NOTE: The statistics generated by the app are based on a factory calibration of the TM-1 Spoke Tension Meter. The values given should be used as a general guideline, as actual TM-1 readings may vary based on the care, history, and usage of any given meter.
The TS-2Di Dial Indicator Set is designed to fit any Park Tool TS-2.2 or TS-2 Truing Stand (figure 1). The TS-2Di provides a quantitative measurement of a wheel’s lateral (side to side) and radial (up and down) trueness or run out. By setting standards for lateral and radial true, and having all mechanics true to these standards, a service department can save time, be more productive, and produce consistent results for all wheels.
This article will review the truing and service of the Mavic® Cosmic® Carbone SLR. For measuring tension on the Cosmic® Carbone SLR use the TM-1 with the most current tension chart (downloadable via the TM-1 product page).
