When you thinking about truing a bicycle and want to do it perfectly there is some tricky way how you can do this. Here we have discussed the detailed technique of wheel truing visualizing.

Today where the show is not just about the procedure, but about teaching it. This one is about decision-making.
For example, a novice learning how to true bike wheels like a pro for the first time. It can be quite confusing. There are so many spokes to choose from.
left side, right side, tighten or loosen. Sometimes it just feels easier to give up or flip a coin. I would say there are many learning styles. Some people like to talk about things, have conversations.
Other people want to read it or look at pictures or videos, and yet others want to feel it and touch it and learn by doing let’s use that on truing. A wheel, a wheel is nothing but a bunch of spokes and a hoop.
All connected. So, we have vectors, we have forest power acting along the line. That’s the spokes here. We have 16, 16, all connected here and here and here, the rim literally trapped in the middle.
So, pulling it can pull left. It can pull right. Pulls all around. So, we’re going to try and use this knowledge to correct the deviations or the lateral walls.
We spin the wheel and look for our worst lateral deviation. The worst wobble. It seems to be right through here.
So, we’ve got choices here. We have spokes over here. We can tighten. We have spokes over here. We could tighten. So, what we’re going to do is try and simulate. What’s going to happen if we tighten spokes.
So, let’s take the same side, spokes. These two here, we can squeeze these two together and see, does it make it better or worse?
It seems to make it even worse. But now come to the opposite side and try these two spokes squeeze. Oh. It seems to make it better.
So, what we want to do is increase the tension on this side and just this area, a few spokes and nipples are right-hand threaded.
So, from this perspective, this is very important to tighten the screw perfectly. Check left side screw and then right-side screw and if there is any loose tight it.
But it’s all about the perception because when you’re above it, it can seem like tightening would be loosening, or loosening would be tightening. But it is a righty, tightly lefty loosely from this perception.
So, think of simulations that show what it is you want to teach. It’s another tool to reach multiple learning styles and it’s better than flipping a coin.
