The key to wheels that are strong and reliable is having spokes that are properly and uniformly tensioned. The TM-1 Tension Meter accurately and reliably measures the absolute tension of each of the spokes in a wheel, as well as the relative tension between all the spokes in a wheel. Easy to use and priced affordably, the TM-1 works on nearly any bicycle spoke-no matter what the diameter, material, or shape. Not just for the experienced mechanic, the TM-1 is for anyone building or truing wheels, diagnosing wheel problems, or assembling new bikes. It's a tool that belongs on every workbench.

StarStarStarStarStar Great way to check spoke tension

by
Product: Park TM-1 Spoke Tension Meter
Ownership: more than a year
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Easy to use
Can do with wheel on bike

Cons

none

Other Thoughts

I do about 3500 miles a year, with half on loaded tours. Hitting bumps, ruts etc, and plain ole road vibration causes the spokes to not be balanced, which will cause spoke damage at some point.

StarStarStarStarStar Good tool

Product: Park TM-1 Spoke Tension Meter
Ownership: a few months
Tech Knowledge: somewhat high

Pros

Know the tension of your spokes while building a wheel.

Cons

They say measure twice. Cut once. Well, I don't know how much measuring I did with this thing to rebuild my wheel, but I was ready to just put the thing on my bike and ride already. Lots of measuring.

Other Thoughts

When you use park tools online graph after getting the wheel trued up, you see the differences in tension. It's amazing how much you can even it up just by knowing where to start. The graph is useful.

I have rebuilt 2 wheels with this tool. I built one before getting it.
