So I have a feeling that my Xtracycle's wheels are gonna be going out of true a lot, what with me carrying people on it and all. So I bought myself a pro truing stand from Park Tool. I've been lusting after one of these for years...and when I was drunk at the computer the other day I said, Shit! I'll just buy one. And I did.
That was a lie. I wasn't drunk...I don't think.
Anyway, now I've got one, and a dish gauge and I'm ready to go. Bring me your wobbly wheels.
I can't build wheels yet, though. I don't have a spoke tension meter...that was like another sixty bucks and I drew the line there. Besides, I don't need any wheels right now. Maybe later. We'll see.
