Re: Necro's Bike Repair Help - Ask me how to fix stuff and I'll give it a shot.
I've been riding bikes my entire life, including several years racing professionally.
Never ONCE balanced a wheel.
Truing is all you need. Anyone claiming to be able to feel an imbalanced wheel under 50mph is delusional or has lead attached to the rim.
It's a chinadoll on a bicycle. Why overthink it?
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
