yup, that is my method as well. Id like a few other variations... like using the ht for main true point and disregarding the bb entirely, but one needs a full table for this. oh ya, and go to a granite counter top place, find a remnant for next to nothing. It will probably crack apart in due time, but ive trued many bikes this way, and if you can make a base for it, some serious wood, id think it would last a LONG time, and typically they are plenty true for bike building.
