I've been borrowing a spin doctor stand from the local tool library. I've also used a fork in a vice as a truing stand, but definitely prefer the spin doctor.

If you have canti brakes, you can quick release the yoke cable and the pads should swing out so you can visually inspect them and clean them. Then wipe down your rim brake surface at the same time.

Yep. The problem I'm having is that the limit screws couldn't be properly set when moving to a 10 speed cassette. The shifter would not shift to the big cog unless the limit screw was loosened.
