This is a stunning looking truing stand from Park Tools. If you are looking to do any form of Wheel building or truing this is the benchmark that all others have to follow.
What are the main features of the Park TS2.2
This the second incarnation of the worlds most popular professional truing stand has some new features to make this more accurate than ever. It is capable of now accepting up to 29″ wheels (with or without a tire), and longer hub widths – up to 175mm.
Ease of use:
The various handles have been upgraded to make them more comfortable and easier to use than ever before, and it is now possible to change the caliper tips if they wear down.
What I like about this is that the whole stand is rock solid, with practice it is possible to string a wheel in no time, and get it perfect each and every attempt.

We have looked at the reviews on the internet, and Amazon has some great feed back, over 20 people have reviewed the stand and have given it a score of 4.5 out of 5.0
“versatile wheel truing stand that makes accurate truing of your wheels relatively easy. “
“biking is more than just a hobby, it’s a passion”
“It’s a precision instrument”
That sounds great, but what are the negatives?
The instructions assume that you already have good knowledge of wheel truing. If you are new to this I would recommend Zinn and the art of bike maintenance. The workshop bible for most cyclists
This is an expensive piece of kit at over $200. However if you ever need to true a wheel you will appreciate that the money is well spent. This is a solid bench top machine that will give years of reliable service.
