    Default Digital wheel truing



    What I'm doing is a little esoteric but maybe of interest to specialists. It's something I developed for myself as a wheelbuilder but at the point where it might turn into a product (or not). For now I call it Digitally Integrated Truing (DiTRU). If you have any comments, I'm not sensitive. At the link below is a focus group-type survey to help chart the path forward if any.

    Good stuff Ryan. I played around with something similar when I started Wheelworks about 14 years ago but ultimately went another route. Software and tech have come a long way since then and it's great to see you using those building blocks to create something really cool.

    I'm going to take down the video posted above as it's out of date but, in case anyone is interested, here's a link to a new site I built that contains updated videos.

    I think that's brilliant, particularly the foot control but the whole thing seems very well thought out.

    Man, that is a cool setup. A lot of good ideas there, it seems quite well thought out.
