Trunkmonkey Racing Ghetto Wheel Truing using Zipties

After 10 miles of rough trail riding on the old 1992 GT Karakoram Full Rigid my slightly out-of-true wheel became a significantly out-of-true wheel with a bent spoke; it was rubbing brake pad in four locations. I guess my fat ass bombing a downhill full of fist-sized loose rocks and small boulders was a bad idea.

Thanks to [amazon_link id=”1934030597″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Zinn and the Art of Mountain Bike Maintenance[/amazon_link] I was able to do a ghetto wheel truing using zipties attached to the frame in lieu of a proper wheel truing stand.
