Park Tool TM-1
StarStarStarStarStar 4.7 of 5 stars average ( 15 reviews )
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 Built Up My First Wheel

by
Product: Park TM-1 Spoke Tension Meter
Ownership: a few months
Tech Knowledge: average

Pros

Needed a spoke tension gauge to build up my first wheel (rear mountain bike 29”). Typical high quality Park tool. Wheel is still true after 6 months of jumps, whips, and basic thrashing from my 200lb body.

Cons

Would be a bonus if engraved gauge numbers would be a different color making them easier to see with my 55 year old eyes.

StarStarStarStarStar Must have tool for wheel building

by
Product: Park TM-1 Spoke Tension Meter
Ownership: a few weeks
Tech Knowledge: high

Pros

Ease of use
Possible to recalibrate

Cons

May not work with small diameter wheels

Other Thoughts

Compared to the Wheelsmith spoke tension meter, this tool is much easier to use and read. I have used the Wheelsmith tool for years, but found it inadequate when building a wheel with 2.3 mm spokes. The Park tool handled these just fine. The included conversion table covers a wide variety of spoke types.

StarStarStarStarStar Reliable and easy to use

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

Pros

I've used this tool to true wheels on everything from road bikes to fat bikes. I've also built a few wheels with it. Really a necessary tool to do proper maintenance on bike wheels.

Cons

May seem a little fiddly until you get used to using it. After that, you can check an entire wheel's spoke tension in a couple of minutes.
