I know the Park 2.2 stand is awesome but I wouldn't use it enough to justify the cost. What is the best truing stand for around $100?

TS- 8
Ice Tools
Minoura
Spin Doctor
TS-25
Something else?

A used TS2.
been trying to ebay one but people will pay nearly as much as what you can get a new TS2.2 for. i've been using a minoura for years and it's worked perfectly but I kinda want something sturdier.

the best truing "stand" also trues rotors

Hello Bud, the best deal I've found is the morningstar R2.O.C.-TECH which puts a dial indicator on the bike for checking rims and rotors. It is in your ball park cost at $103.

I've found my wheels stay more true now that the spokes are so even. AND it is easy to use- watching the dial taught me more than any book on the subject.

L.Zinn has a video on the tool on utube. somewhere.

I was looking at he web site and all they have right now is the park dial retrofit kit.

Thanks for all the input. I decided to not get a truing stand before I built my rear wheel. I just used the zip tie method to get radial and lateral truing. For dish I just used Mike T's method of a inside dimension caliper and the chain stays. I was supplies how well it worked and how accurate I was able to get with this method. It was a little awkward at first but I got used to it.
