Description

The tool you need for building wheels.

Building your own wheels or replacing spokes can be an easy and rewarding experience. A trueing stand may be the first tool you need to achieve this, but the Park Tool TM-1 Spoke Tension Meter is a close second. The TM-1 gives you accurate and reliable measurements on nearly any bicycle spoke -- regardless of diameter, material, or shape. It measures the absolute tension of each of the spokes in a wheel, as well as the relative tension between them. The TM-1 is a tool that belongs on every workbench.

Easy to use

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Built a rear wheel with this and checking tension was the least time consuming part of the build. Much easier than using a guitar tuner and more accurate than gauging with hand squeezes.

Quality is nice and is a must for home mechanics.

Solid, Quality Tool

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The pictures make this look cheap an flimsy. It solid piece of anodized blue metal and has a tension spring that measures tension. It is actually a really nice tool and seems to be really precise. The box it came in was nice enough that I store the tool in there for safe keeping rather than hanging it. It also comes with a really nice tension conversion chart and spoke sizing measuring tool.

Is like having a handpump!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Gotta have this if your a true shadetree bike mechanic like myself. What use is the wheel truing stand without a meter to let you know how out of tension those spokes are! Simple and easy to use and made like a tank! If your concerned with a true wheel then you better be also concerned with proper spoke tension too.
