  1. Works for professionals. I dont think i am able of doint something like this on 100% and great vudeo. You have my sub :)

  2. I was always shown to tighten the spokes in pairs but I saw you tightening just one spoke at a time.?

  3. Great video! First place I've seen to do the stress relief, and I'm glad you covered both lateral and radial truing. I'll definitely be coming back for more repair videos as my bike breaks more ;)

  4. amazing guide sir. thank you very much.

  5. I don't have one of those contraptions that show the wobble. What do I substitute for it? Will the fork of the bike do well?

  6. Great video…thank you!!!!

  7. my question is why are we still using spoke if they are so prone to untrue. why not none bendable material


  9. Thank you for making this video. I have watched a few now and your the only one that has made it an enjoyable experience. Most videos only show lateral adjustment with a lot of jibber jabber and no real scene of what's going on.

  10. This guy is the real YouTube Hero. Easy to take access to information like this for granted. <3

  11. excellent video , thnx

  12. What if I use some kind of locktite like adhesive after adjusting the rim perfectly ? is that a really bad idea ?

  13. This is actualy one of the understandable wheel truing tutorials.

  17. I can only add my thanks to those already posted. A wonderful example of how to impart information in a clear and concise way.

  28. Wow that was actually the most informative video I watched tonight! Great vid now onto truing my wheels !!!!

  29. Wow! ! Nice

  30. Good Video, honest and good advice, there are a lot of people out there like repair shops that pray on people that do not have a basic understanding of mechanical know how and give advice that is only half right and a half wrong ,in an attempt to steer them into doing something they should not do. And there for end up taking it to the shop anyway, and they get there profit regardless. So thanks for being TRUE lol to your work.

  41. The only video I have ever watched that allows me to understand how to true a wheel. Thank you !
