Wheelwright helps you build, repair, or maintain bicycle wheels by easily visualizing the tension of each spoke in relation to the target tension desired for the rim.


  • Visualizes spoke tension, quickly showing whether the wheel is within spec
  • Converts deflection readings from Park Tool’s TM-1 tension meter to kilograms-force (kgf) — support for other tension meters is planned for future releases
  • Outputs a report of the wheel (as a PDF file) that can be given to a customer or hung on the refrigerator
