    Truing a Lefty wheel?!?

    How do you true a Cannondale Lefty wheel??? Is there some type of mechanics trick or do you need to buy an adapter of some sort? I'm going to use a Park TS-2 so if you can tell me what I need to do the job I'm all ears....errr, eyes!

    Adaptors from C-dale, good luck.
    I do all my own work = I have very low standards

    Yeah...hit up Google and found the part number for Cdale's truing adapter. It's QCTL108 if anyone else is interested. So I guess I just do the back wheel tonight...LOL

    I use a popscicle stick held on to the one fork leg with a rubber band to true them. It ain't perfect, but it works.

    I think a certain Jack makes an adapter for this... Oh, and the C'dale part no. is QCTL 108.

    Just wanted to help


    (Personally, I'd definitely go ghetto. Rig up a marker to the fork leg and you're done.)
