Get round

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - What I Do -

With the side wob­ble fixed, the wheel is now checked for round, run­ning the pointer both above and be­low the rim. Where the rim is too far away from the pointer, spokes pulling right and left should be tight­ened equally while the ones op­po­site the bump should be loos­ened. Once you’re back in the round, check for any loose spokes – they will ring duller than the oth­ers – and that none of the spoke threads are pok­ing through the nip­ples. Now get the tyre on and get go­ing.
