I'm visiting my folks in their apartment in a retirement complex. No garage, no place to work except the front deck and the parking lot. I'm riding a POS that I rented for $20/week, about what it is worth. Long story short, beyond all the other work I've had to do to it, I had to build a rear wheel, yesterday, from the remains of a blown rear and a good front. No truing stand, no dishing guage. So I built it on the frame itself. The easiest and fastest wheel I've ever built. I can't imagine using either of those tools again; completely redundant.
