Sheldon Brown Saves the day again
Let me preface as I preface many of my posts, I am new to working on my bike and have no clue what i am doing. That said I have a decent repair book and have been trying to true my front wheel for like a week now. SO i know from the book to tighten the opposite spoke and loosen the other spoke. What I did not realize (until I read sheldons article because I was getting frustrated at the wheel getting worse every time I tried to change it) was that spokes are reversed because you would normally tighten them with a screwdriver and the tire off.
Ahhh Lightbulb goes off in my head!
Now if only he had a way for my VDO C3DS Wireless to not be a piece of crap. But alas that is a losing battle. Probably chalk up the $60 loss and go get something else, maybe a C2 Wired only cause I like the display and the main problem is the wireless function.
