A spoke tension meter is a requirement for bike tune-ups.
Use a light touch in changing tensions and observe the wheel for side to side variance and out of round before touching the adjustments.
- Measure the absolute tension of each of the spokes in a wheel.
- The TM-1 works on nearly any bicycle spoke.
- Used for building or truing wheels, diagnosing wheel problems, or assembling new bikes.
- Measure relative tension between all the spokes in a wheel.
Personal Method: If a wheel has a bulge to one side, loosen the tension on that side (at the bulge) -- or increase on the other side -- or a combination of both. Make small 1/4 turn adjustments to the spokes to determine if you are adjusting the proper way.
You need a spoke wrench.
