Truing Stand Brake?
#1
While looking at a couple of posts and my brain going Bike crazy within the past few weeks I was thinking. How sometimes when truing wheels on the stand and the wheel turns away and ya loose your place. Like if ya had to get up and walk away for a moment the wheel ghost quietly spins the wheel lol. Anyone have suggestion on keeping braked, or rather held in place?
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!

Simple...........

You already saw my set-up in another post, so what I do is mark the beginning and the end of the "wow" on the side of the rim where it breaks, with that lumber crayon. That way, you know where to work, if you suddenly get interupted. Now you can concentrate on making the adjustments.

Painters tape. Cheap and doubles as indicator of how much the spoke turns.
