This little device just mounts to your seat tube via rubber bands. You can then check and adjust the true of your rear wheel using coat hanger wires inserted into the holes. If interested I posted the file in Thingiverse under "Bicycle Wheel Trueing Device". I use heavy duty coat hangers at 2.6mm diameter, so if you need the design modified to take another size coat hanger let me know.

No matter where your at... There you are... Δf:=f(1/2)-f(-1/2)

A zip tie on the seat stay works about the same.

This is very clever, I like it. Technically you would only need one bent rod. If your wheel is not bent then truing to one side should be enough, you could always remount it upside down the check the other side. That way you could make it smaller and maybe faster to print.
