    Get it right the first time.

    The third most important tool on your workbench is your Park Tool Spoke Tensioner. The first two are, of course, your 5mm Allen wrench and your truing stand. The spoke tensioner gives you accurate readings of your spoke tension, so you don’t need to squeeze and guess anymore while you build your next set of wheels.

    Gets the Job Done

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    You have to be pretty diligent with your measurements with this tool. Measuring the same place on every spoke is critical, and readings are still inconsistent sometimes. All said it gets the job done, and we built a wheel using it and it has stayed true.

    how else to know spoke tension?

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've built a handful of wheels over the years and with a few more in my near future (dynamo wheels for fatbike and randonee bike) figured I'd get serious about spoke tension rather than by feel. Couple of the rim makers published tension specs so I could build with confidence. On the others (carbon) I could get them true and evenly tensioned and they've held up well so far. Deducting a star because its a pretty simplistic tool yet costs as much as a decent rim...


    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This little tool is very important when building a wheel. Getting each spoke to the same, correct tension will ensure you end up with a true and round wheel. Comes with easy to use tension guide for every wheel build out there.

    Easy to use

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Built a rear wheel with this and checking tension was the least time consuming part of the build. Much easier than using a guitar tuner and more accurate than gauging with hand squeezes.

    Quality is nice and is a must for home mechanics.

    Solid, Quality Tool

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    The pictures make this look cheap an flimsy. It solid piece of anodized blue metal and has a tension spring that measures tension. It is actually a really nice tool and seems to be really precise. The box it came in was nice enough that I store the tool in there for safe keeping rather than hanging it. It also comes with a really nice tension conversion chart and spoke sizing measuring tool.

    Is like having a handpump!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Gotta have this if your a true shadetree bike mechanic like myself. What use is the wheel truing stand without a meter to let you know how out of tension those spokes are! Simple and easy to use and made like a tank! If your concerned with a true wheel then you better be also concerned with proper spoke tension too.

    Is that item help you solve for wheel rebuilding ? yes or no.
