    For all you fixie home mechanics...

    Check out this wheel truing jig... Listing says it 5'-5" high! I have no affiliation with the seller, but in my 20+ years in biking/wrenching I have never seen anything like it.

    probably not since there is a reserve on an already high price. But hey, at least the shipping is cheap for 200lbs!

    Wanna bet it's a motorcycle wheel truing stand? I've seen crossover listings on EBay.

    Looking at the thumbnails, I was all "What does a bandsaw have to do with bikes?"

    Weighs 200 pounds, and only costs $10 to ship to CT! Sweet!

    My google-fu tells me that's what Bontrager uses to true their wheels. Sounds like a pretty sweet machine.
