This is cool but i like having a two fork design. so i can see the wobble(hehe wobble) on each side.

Would this work on a wheel with a quick release skewer?

Toby from Tennessee

It will work with a quick release wheel. You just have to remove the scewer and put something like a extra bolt onto the axel as a spacer so that you can lock the quick release down.

good idea but what about bmx wheels

dave

if im concerned with strictly 700c wheels, could i just mount a salvaged road fork upside down, take measurements and get everything level and attach some sort of caliper to each side in line with the rim?

Patrick

That cassette is in serious need of lubrication, or throwing in the bin!

Yes Dave, I used old road forks as a truing stand. I just drilled a hole in the end of the work bench to take the steerer tube, cut it off with 1cm clearance below the bench, cut a new thread on the steerer tube and threaded old headset parts on from below to hold in place. Then drill a small hole through the fork at the right place to accommodate a setscrew with fairly coarse thread for each side and you are in business!
