Home wheel trueing stands
no experience of it, but it does look remarkably similar to the park one, as does the spoke key in the customers also bought section.
I haven’t seen anything as robust looking for that price.
One thing to look out for on the park one is that the original legs were not quite long enough for 29er rims with tyres but you could get step upsPosted 4 years agothisisnotaspoonMember
I think it’s probably like most things, once you use the right tool for the job it’s difficult to see how you managed without.
Yup, although my Minoura one irritates me by only being able to dish symetricaly, so wheels need finishing in the frame/forks anyway.Posted 4 years agonikkMember
I don’t understand how a lot of those truing stands work with 15mm through axle stuff?
Also, I don’t see how using the bike frame / forks itself is a problem. Clamp assembled wheel in, start tightening, blutac business card to frame/fork so it rubs on high spots, measure to make sure wheel is central, true and tighten more, finished.
Maybe a stand is good if you are doing that every day, I could see why you’d want a separate device to hold the wheel, and not mess about with blutac. But for hobbyists?Posted 4 years agoRusty MacSubscriber
For the top stand it is pretty easy to do 15mm/20mm wheels. I just pull the axle out of the fork and use that to hold it in the stand. The uprights move out and in so you can tighten them down on the end caps to stop it moving about.
I guess 1800 Euros for that stand rusty linked to above puts things in perspective, granted it does look purdy wowsers 1800 Euros.Posted 4 years agohumattzeeSubscriber
Hi all. Saw the original post when I had one of the Jobsworth stands in the mail (arrived in one piece very quickly so no complaints with On One/Planet X), so thought I’d throw my two pence in once it got here. Stand is quite robustly built…. Not bling like the Park stand as expected, but functional and will serve my purposes for a long time to come methinks. For bolt thru hubs, Park TS-2TA adaptors fit the Jobsworth fine and work for me.Posted 4 years ago
Picked the stand up via Planet X’s ebay store, and got £10 off with an unexpected ebay voucher/ promotion so for £70 I’d say it was a bargain and worth the punt if you don’t want to shell out on the Park.
