    spoke wrench for shimano 560s?

    - did a few searches but didn't come up with a definitive on this one:

    what is a good spoke wrench for trueing up Shimano 560s? i recently purchased a set from a fellow BF member here, and the wheels are great; however, i'd like to touch up a tad wobble in the rear rim which has appeared after several hundred miles on the wheelset (which was NIB)...

    do i have to go to a Shimano TL-WH77 spoke wrench? they're US$18 on-line!

    tia!

    Go to an auto supply store and pick up an ignition wrench. Works on your wheels as well as Cane Creeks.
    Easier to use than Shimano's because it is longer and fits your hand better. Cheaper, too.

    I have been looking around for one of these wrenches.

    Could you let me know what are the measurements for the ignition wrench you are talking about? Is it 4mm?

    Not sure about the size, 3/16 or 5/16.

    Why don't you take your front wheel to the auto-supply store and see which wrench fits?
