Park TM-1 Spoke Tension Meter

Park Tool TM-1
StarStarStarStarStar 4.7 of 5 stars average ( 13 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 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.

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.
