Wheel balance - what to do....
Posted February 16, 2011 - 12:44 AM
So I put it up on my bike stand and started to check the balance.
The culprit is the rim lock. To get it in balance it took 120gm opposite the rim lock!
That's a lot of weight to try to secure to a rim or spokes.
Do I use a big weight on the spokes or do I take out the rim lock ???

yep I noticed it on the Tarmac.
I only really do fire trails etc so I tend to run higher pressures. I am thinking that for a slow poke like me the rimlock can go.

Motion pro make a lightweight plastic rimlock I'm not sure of the weight savings, I picked one up and it felt heavier than i expected but I didn't have a standard Yamaha one to compare it with. There is also small alloy rimlocks available.Hope this helps.
