    What are you guys using??

    I have the POS harbor freight one and I swear it’s warped.

    Any suggestions?

    The Marc Parnes look nice. About the same price as Motion Pro and Bike Master. You guys would choose Marc Parnes over those?

    if youre gona get another... tusk makes a nice unit with the adjustable legs and truing capabilities. The MP unit is nice but incomplete imho... and Ive never seen a tire vendor use one

    That's the stand I have. Works well for me.

    So I took my wheel to the Indian dealership by my house to have them balance it. It only too 14 grams (and a 6 pack). That's almost negligible right?

    On my stand I was getting that it was balanced with no weights.

    My street cred says that's .5 oz. :cool: Not much weight at all. I find static balancing and spin balancing usually end up being a little different. In my experience that's not enough weight to matter much, unless said weight was put on the wrong place.
