Park Wheel Truing Stands
Also see our selection of Park Work Stands
TS-2 Stand Professional Wheel Truing Stand TS-2
The Park TS-2 Professional Truing Stand is the jig to choose for heavy shop or home use. Quickly and easily accepts wheels from 16 to 28 inches, with or without the tire removed. Both axle-holding upright fork blades move simultaneously, always centering the wheel hub with the calipers, regardless of the hub width. Calipers and caliper arm are spring-loaded to prevent jamming with badly out-of-true wheels. Made of heavy chrome plated steel with nylon bushings at pivot points. Can be bench-mounted or vise-held. If a forward or backward tilt is desired, use with the Park Truing Stand Tilting Base TSB-2. The most widely used truing stand ever made. For precision work, the Park TS-2 should be used with the Park WAG-4 Professional Wheel Alignment Gauge (pictured below).

Park Spoke Tension Gauge

Easy to use and priced affordably, the TM-1 works on nearly any bicycle spoke-no matter what the diameter, material, or shape.
