This article will discuss the truing of the common spoked bicycle wheel.
This article with 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).
