dont buy a truing stand, tape a pencil to your swingarm so its point is almost touching your rim. put your bike on a stand so the back wheel is raised. rotate the back wheel and see which way the wheel seems bent toward. if you need to pull it to the right tighten the spokes that come from the right of the hub, and vice versa. turn the spoke nipples counterclockwise to tighten. this is by no means the professional way, but if you only have to do it periodically, then its a money saver.

for a lacing stand get a piece of pipe with a pipe flange and screw it to a board standing straight up.

sounds hack but it works.

I got one on ebay for $100 about 2 yrs. ago and it's been one of the best/ easiest tools I have. I've done all my wheels(9 bikes), all my friends and even some TT members too. :naughty: Altogether I've done about 30 whole wheel sets.(new rim,over-sized spokes/nipples)

Here what it looks like:

Just go on ebay and search under trueing stand, trueing wheel and so on.

This might help with building the wheel too:

Good Luck....it's easy!!! :naughty:
