When you look at the conversion table livered with the Park Tool you can see the tension in kgf ( 1kgf is 10Nm).gvnfnc77 wrote:mattr wrote:Yeah, you're also measuring the load needed to twist the spoke over quite a short span.
Should be measuring through the flat faces, rather than edge to edge, or your readings will be hugely high.
Whit his way the result is...hugely low btw :-/
For your front wheel (Vision manual 80-100 kgf) it must be ( spoke metal 1,1 x 2 ) 104 kgf = <15 on the Parktool.
Yes, no tension at all on "landscape mode" measurement.
Btw, we come back to the initial question.
You're right, <15 on the Parktool following Vision's instructions (and 17 for rear wheel on the drive side...), and i got this result working with the ParkTool TM-1, but...after that, pinching the spokes they feel too lazy, so we are in front on 2 ways:
_Are the ParkTool TM-1s all uncalibrated or Vision/Fsa understimate their spokes tension?
(and even yes, spokes of my Vision measure 1,1x2mm)
I own other 2 Vision wheelset with same spokes (yes, same blade spokes..same measurement 1,1x2mm, and same 2:1 ratio, on trimax 30 and t30), and measument picked on the original wheels are on the ParkTool 22 for the front wheel and rear wheel (non drive side) and 24,5..on the rear wheel on the drive side.
