After building and truing 36er unicycle wheels “in the frame” for many years now, I finally upgraded my wheel building set-up with a Park TS2.2 truing stand. The spec sheet said it would take up to a 29er rim and that is all good for the little wheels in my life, but the nicest surprise was that by adding the KH bolt-on truing stand bearing holders, its arms are now long enough to fit a 36er wheel with a little room to spare. I attached a pic of a Nimbus Nightrider 36er wheel I’m working on for a V-frame distance unicycle project. Its kind of small, but I think you get the idea.
I don’t think the Park Tool blokes ever even thought of this large of a bike wheel in thier stand, but its a welcome upgrade for big wheel building.
This is it:
