Truing my first wheel
#1
I replaced three spokes on this wheelset I just picked up for practicly nothing. It had three spokes dangling around when I got them.

So I put the three spokes on and tightened them up. I put into my hack truing stand (old fork stuck in my vice) and played around with it for a while. I think i did pretty good, it wobbles a bit still but I'm happy with my first one.

Congratulations!!! I did a small 18" wheel in my Minoura Pro and it came out pretty good, about a month ago. The wheel was off a piece of s"crap" bike lol.
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!

Post a pic when your done with it. Sounds like a fun project. Time is the key to projects, with winter here it gives one what time is needed.
