Holiday Sale at the LBS was still going on...

KA-CHING. Man do they see me coming or what? I've been looking to get a truing stand for some time now. I walked in to the Lbs to get the Gary Fisher I'd left to get a new BB, and found the Park Tools Home Mechanic Truing stand at 20% off, some quick math, and I came home with a truing stand. Now all those wobbling wheels are in for it, and I'll be spending many late nights watching TDF videos and truing wheels. I sort of feel like the kid in A Christmas Story with his Red Rider BB gun: only no one ever lost an eye to a truing stand.

No, not an eye... but I bet some fingers have been caught in a spoke or two!

I dunno, a broken spoke on a truing stand can be a dangerous thing. Probably just kill you outright though...
