A properly-tensioned wheel is stronger, and stays true longer. This article will review how to properly measure and adjust spoke tension.
Bicycles are designed with the front and rear wheels centered over the midplane of the bike. If the wheels are not centered, or out of dish, the bike can handle poorly. This article will review how to check and adjust bicycle wheel dishing by making changes to spoke tension.
If a bicycle wheel is out-of-true (meaning not sufficiently straight or round) it can affect riding performance and shorten the life of components. This article will outline the process of truing the common spoked bicycle wheel.
