Hello.


I've almost every parts to build a pair of wheels. I've ordered on starbike.com a Parktool tensiometer.
The problem is that still lack it.

Where can I find this one or another cheap one fastly? I will need it soon.


Thanks.Adrien.

DT Swiss make two tensionometers that are nice. One is electronic, the other is not. The electronic one is pricey, but the regular version is more affordable.

Check their website out. http://www.dtswiss.com/index.asp?fuseaction=proline.bike

I bought mine directly from DT Swiss in the USA but that option is probably not available to you. Good luck.

Ow, I've seen the dt tensiometer but they are really out of price for me! 350€ and 550€... the parktool is 100€.

Check to see if you can source a Wheelsmith tensiometer. It works on the same principle as the Park tool. It is a bit more expensive but no where near the price of a tensiometer that has a dial or digital gauge built into it. Here is the link to their site - http://www.wheelsmith.com/page5.html I have both the Wheelsmith and a DT tensiometer and use either with confidence. Failing that do you have a good relationship with your local bike shop where they will let you use their tensiometer or provide you with a double check of your work?
