Yesterday I made my first attempt at truing my wheels using the Park Tool truing stand at the local community bike workshop. I found that I was doing a lot of bending my head sideways and squinting with one eye closed at the gap between the caliper and the rim. This left me with a stiff neck and back after a couple hours of it.
So to all you folks who true wheels all day long, what are your tips for proper ergonomic posture when using a truing stand? Do you stand straight and sight straight down the side of the rim at the caliper? Do you close one eye or just keep both open and learn to ignore the image from one side (like how I was taught to use a microscope)? Thanks for any tips.
