One of my friends asked me to look at the wheel from one of his fellow church members.
The guy was homeless and needed a favor.
After he showed up, I put it on the truing stand and it was spot on as one could expect from a used wheel.
Next i ran the tension meter and the tensions were basically perfect.
He then told me he had taken it to the LBS and they had trued it.

Then I stepped back and saw the big bulge in the tire!
I was in such of a hurry to show my "skills", I missed the forest!
