This is the pre-eminent portable truing stand and dishing tool kit we can find. We all deserve a P&K Lie, and those who run busy workshops also need a Park TS-2. But for space, economy, and portability, nothing challenges the Minoura. No wonder, it’s been evolving for decades.
Minoura’s stand is 1/5 the weight and almost 1/3 the price of Park. Its arms are geared to move outwards equally, it fits hubs up to 140mm wide, and provides ample indicators to judge roundness and trueness. We used these for years when we offered wheel building classes and they worked great for beginners. An excellent wheel building instruction manual is included.
Think about it: wouldn’t a 5lb stand be a great addition to your bike space or traveling tools?
Buy it combo with the dishing tool (see separate listing) and you’ll save a bit and be fully equipped!
