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!

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.)
