What do you guys consider true? I bought a truing stand last Friday & straightened 4 wheels out that were slightly ovaled & wobbly. The stand has already paid for itself. I'm wondering what you guys consider acceptable tolerances. I try to get them inside of 1mm. I had to laterally true the set with Bontrager hardcase tires after I remounted them because they were so difficult to get on. I'm wondering if I need to buy a tension meter, I would like to take a stab at building my own wheelset this fall. I bought a new wheelset & crashed a week later, that's when I figured that I needed to learn to do my own truing. Is anyone able to get them perfectly straight once they've been knocked out of true?
I haven't seen anything in the DIY wheel truing instructions that indicate what is acceptable as far as tolerances. I wish I would have checked out how true my new wheelset was before I crashed them. How critical is dishing when truing? I noticed that I had to adjust my Vbrakes over a few MM when switching between wheelsets, is this something I should be concerned about? I put a small hole in the rim tape at one of the spoke holes when I was trying to get one of the hardcase tires off & didn't replace it before remounting the tire. Is this no biggie or should I go through the PITA of replacing it ASAP? Thanks for any advise.
