    Truing Ksyrium Bladed Wheels

    How do I true the wheels without turning the bladed spokes? I used the tool Mavic gives with the wheels at the nipple but the spokes turn as well. I have tried holding the spokes with pliers without success.

    Turn a slight bit (1/4-1/8 turn) farther than you want to, then turn back.
    Also, an adjustable crescent wrench works better than pliers. Hold it very close to the nipple

    The crescent wrench was the key. I had no problem after your advice. Thanks for your help...

    A fourth hand works well.
