Truing a Wheel
Alex, I have seen your video on how to true a wheel. However, being a young bike mechanic myself, I do not own a truing stand. I was wondering what truing stand brand you recommend and one that could be used for all different types of wheels and one that is affordable. Thank you!

The Park TS8 is a good affordable truing stand. If you want something a little more sturdy and professional I'd go with the Park TS2.
Take a look at Roger Musson's book (, I can recommend it. He describes his own setup, he built the truing stand himself since no commercially available stand fitted his needs. The book is cheap enough (9 GBP ~ 12 USD) but only available electronically. I can definitely recommend it, it is very detailed. Oh, and when you buy it, you get free upgrades when a new version comes out. I own a Minoura truing stand. It works and was cheap. That is the best I can say about it... I wouldn't recommend it for regular use, though.
