Amassing all of the specialty tools needed for your home shop is often a lifelong pursuit. Between the cost of such dedicated tools and ever-changing industry standards, your tool chest is almost always short one tool or another. The lowly truing stand is a tool that often gets overlooked, perhaps for some because tweaking the near-magical balance of a good wheel gives them night sweats, or because of the other tools needed to get the most from a stand. The Feedback Sports Wheel Truing Station's simple, easy-to-use design makes it the ideal choice for home mechanics, and the fact that you won't have to remove the tire to do the job (even massive 29er meats) makes it all the more accessible.
The one-armed design makes easy work of wheel maintenance and repairs. The stand can be placed on top of any Feedback Work Stand, or it can stand alone on its sturdy plastic 8 x 10in (203mm X 254mm) base which features organizing slots for wheel tools like spoke wrenches and tire levers.
The unique 20in (508mm)long, one-arm design uses your wheels' standard quick releases to secure the wheel in place. As convenient as this is, it does not allow for the truing of any wheel with a thru-axle hub, so early-adopting mountain bikers may want to look elsewhere. It provides easy access to spokes while offering ample clearance for large wheels with tires installed. The run-out indicator can slide all the way up the arm to allow truing of disc brake rotors, taking care of annoying rubbing. The Feedback Sports Wheel Truing Station is made of durable anodized aluminum and weighs in at 7.8lbs (3.5kg) for a nice balance of stability and portability.
