Wheel Truing 101
Wheels commonly become untrue after miles and miles or riding. An untrue wheel is usually easy to spot, your wheel will like as though it is wobbling. Having a wheel that doesn't spin straight will effect your performance on the bike. Most cycling wheels are help together with spokes over a center hub. Each spoke pulls the rim in a specific direction, putting tension on the center hub. Get these spokes to pull evenly all the way around is the art of truing a wheel. Wheel truing can seem like a daunting task and it is if you want to match the level of expertise of a wheel builder. However, for small adjustments that aren't perfect (but good enough for the average cyclist) here is a video on how to true a wheel yourself.
