What is the best truing stand for under $100.? Park TS-7, Minoura or Performance? I need something that I can store away, nothing permanent. I only want to keep the wheels true, not build.
Merci'

Which one is the cheapest? Take the extra money and buy an inexpensive dishing tool as well.

somebody ought to be suing somebody, because they are exactly alike. I've got the Performance, and, bolted or clamped to something sturdy, it works. You don't even necessarily have to remove the tire (although you would have to remove a MTB tire) -- it's not as adjustable as the Park good one, but it works.
i'm using the ts-7, which comes with a dishing toolHaiku d'état

watch the sales ads and get it cheap. mine came from supergo; was printed in LITTLE type on the side of one of their sales flyers for an astoundingly low price. remember, nashbar price matches.

it was a christmas present, has worked well since. no complaints.

good luck.
