Tacx brake shoe alignment tool ??
#1
Did a search and didn't see any info on it... have any of you guys ever tried this tool ?
I like the tool... it even sets the proper toe in and adjustment. The only thing I find troubling about it, is the lip on the top of the tool keeps the pads from going high enough on the outside edge of the rim. The pads run closer to the inside edge near the spokes(see pic)(Is this the proper position for the shoes or should it be higher ?) Other than that, it seems to be a great tool.
What do you guys think about it ??

Overkill, takes longer to find and set up the tool than to just do it straight out. A credit card or business card at the back of the shoes is sufficient for toe-in. The correct position is simple - all in contact with the rim, not too close to the tires.
