Wheel Truing
As per my bbh comments....

My rear wheel is beyond a joke now, i think previous issue on a tubeless failure is to blame, although i should have noticed way sooner?

So essentially, whos good at wheel truing in kent?

Theres no rush as ive got another decent rear wheel to use, just doesnt have blingy hope hub
Harry Rowland is probably regarded as best wheel builder but don't know if he will just true it, as for truing I've had good results with activ and cyclesuk (maidstone). Have you tried your lbs
Have you considered having wheel rebuilt ?, is your rim damaged ?. if its that bad I'd have if rebuilt, 45 quid with harry including all new spokes and nipples including labour. ones he built me have the best tension I've felt in a wheel
Are the spokes all OK... no broken ones  Undecided
No idea about spokes, will have a look at the weekend during its service (which im doing now)

Id like it rebuilt if im honest.
Sorry meant Ok as in not broken, as in head separate from nipple

Harrys your man then, 15 quid labour per wheel can't be beaten IMHO, builds everything from carbon road wheels to dh wheels
Jeff at Motorhouse in Snodland (my LBS) does truing for about  Ã‚£10 plus spokes (if required)
I've built a few sets of wheels from scratch & never once charged myself  Big Grin
Just get a cable tie or two as markers and true it yourself
