Buy a cheap wheel off ebay and practice on it...... This is a great way to learn.
I have a truing stand. Spin Doctor one... I think like 40-60 bucks off performance. The same one WaterRockets uses and I trust him. I did mention I practiced on the wheelset that came on my Trek 1000.. bontrager select set.. cheap.
Not sure how I would mess it up to fix this? I'm not going to try and retension the whole set. I just want to be able to stand or climb without my rear brake quick release up because of this hop.
I will probably take it to a shop for a quick fix if the tools to do it are not worth it depending on the life of this wheelset. But these dura-ace hubs should last a long time so it might be worth investing the time and knowledge.
The only thing different that I can tell is the nipples are at the hub and not at the rim so you have to think backwards while truing and it requires different tools.
Any helps please
