Reading the posts on this forum makes me wonder: How much (Campagnolo) wrenching do you do yourself?
Hmm... that's a good point, I should have added this as an option. I also do not have a spoke tension gauge since they are bloody expensive. And those Campy spokes are already expensive in the first place .tom_h said:I can and would do do everything, except for rebuilding/respoking a rim.
I suppose I wouldn't want to true a wheel either, becase I don't own a decent stand/guage for it.
That's a great tip, thanks. I didn't know that Park had one for that price, I always thought that they were all in the $200+ range. I'm ordering one for myself!tom_h said:I actually ended up buying a Park tension guage for about $57, just so I could occasionaly monitor spoke tension, low tension being a significant potential cause of spoke breakage.
If tension ever goes too low, I'll have LBS retension & re-true wheel.
Thanks for the tips. With free shipping, the Amazon offer is not too bad.tom_h said:I bought my TM1 guage at Amazon, see here:
Currently priced at about $57 but Amazon's annoying "dynamic pricing" will bounce around a few dollars, nearly every time you visit website.
As a bonus, Park has at their website a nifty excel sheet that will display a "spider web" plot of the spoke tensions you measure. Certainly not "necessary" but helps visualize the tension uniformity, especially if you take the wheel to an LBS for truing ore retensioning.
