From Bike Hacks: Desktop Bike Wheel-Truing Stand

November 16, 2010

Reader Rob from Melbourne, Australia contacted us recently with a great hack he came up with to move the true task from his steed to a table.  He was kind enough to send along plenty of text with pictures to match.  If anyone else has come up with their own stands, feel free to give us a shout out.


It could just be me, but the idea of serious metal work (angle grinders, chopping up old frames) makes this a not so useful hack.

Having said that, my own truing stand is homebuilt (out of leftover bits from our kitchen cupboards) so maybe it’s just a case of being happier with joinery than metalwork. Still, follow the link to see Rob’s scrap bike truing stand. I particularly like his lateral truing indicators.
