Pricey, but does the job

Ordered this as I wanted some confidence in truing my own wheels. The build quality is solid (this item is heavy), but it does what its supposed to do. It is pricey for what it is (a bike frame and zip tie would do the same job) but its a great home workshop addition and allows you to true the wheels more comfortably and accurately than leaning over a bike frame. Assembly was quick and setup was easy. The gauge adjuster dial is a bit stiff and getting the gauge accurately within millimetres of the rim whilst trying to tighten it is a bit of a faff. Personally, I referenced a book that I had on how to true wheels perfectly and the results were excellent; true wheels in a matter of minutes. Ultra fast delivery and excellent service from from Tredz too.

Does what it says on the tin!

An ideal set up for occasional home use. If you want to true your wheels, this will definitely do the job. Build quality is excellent, no frills but solid and reliable. I have only given it four stars for performance because for very little extra there could have been a pointer on both sides, thereby meaning I wouldn't have to reverse the wheel to check. Value for money seems a tad on the expensive side for what it is, but I would still heartily recommend it as it take all the guesswork out and makes the job quick and easy.

Workshop Tools Guide

What are home and workshop tools?

Home and workshop tools allow you to tinker around with your bike to your heart’s content. Whether that’s making a simple height adjustment or building a bike from scratch, kitting yourself out with your own mini workshop will give you hours of pleasure which will either annoy or delight your significant other(s).

Who needs a home and workshop tools?

Even novice cyclists will benefit from learning a few simple techniques. However, the more cycling you do, the more likely you are to want to learn how everything works and carry out minor repairs yourself.

What are the choices?

There are home and workshop tools available for all levels of rider, from a full tool kit to a simple torque wrench.

What should I buy with it?

Bike stands hold your steed in place to keep it steady and an apron and a pair of gloves will save your clothing from damage or smudges.

Anything else?

If in doubt, take your bike to your local bike shop for repairs. Better to have an expert fix it than to accidentally cause a fair few pounds worth of damage by having a go yourself.
