After earning my boy scout badge in rear shock rebuilding, I want to cut my teeth on wheel truing. With my discount I can get this Park Tools truing stand for $82 (regularly $127) ... Never heard of this brand before (then again, I've never looked into wheel truing stands before either). Any feedback, good or bad? Anything to look for when it comes to features/benefits on these? Thank you gentleman

I own several park tools for my mountain bikes. They make cycling tools. They are good tools, but I'd make sure that it can support a motorcycle wheel. As far as I know they only do cycling tools

I have the DRC stand, and it is very good. Sturdy and the wheels are held properly, so you can get a more accurate result. http://www.drcproducts.com/tool/d36-52-110/index.html

The trouble with a cheap stand is that one needs to flip the wheel over and over to make sure the dish is correct. Try to go with the shop level Park stand if you can. I recently used a T2.2 and it was very nice to use for a wheel build up.

Good call... I like how that Gyro stand folds up too.
