Title: Cheap Rear Wheel Alignment Tool
Post by Digger on 07/08/07 at 20:20:58

I couldn't find the recent thread, but someone was having problems with a mis-aligned rear wheel.

I was thus inspired to check my alignment (my bike is in my signature).  Found it to be off by a full turn of an adjusting screw!  (It goes without saying that you can't trust the index marks on the swingarm.)

I used this the compare the distance from the swingarm pivot to the middle of the rear axle on both sides of the wheel:

I got my beam compass for about five or six bucks at Sears:

IHTH someone!
