Your string is taped to the lower rear of the wheel and the strings are just barely touching the front edge of the rear wheel? What you're doing is you're extrapolating the travel of the wheel. If the wheel is 4" wide, those strings are going to be 4" apart along their whole length, and will be pointing exactly in the direction the rear wheel is pointing.Strife said:i saw the pictures, i followed the instructions, but i still feel a slight wobble coming from the rear wheel. I reset the strings a couple times and reset the rear wheel to match what the instructions said to do but with various chain tension. I still feel it every time. I just wanna make sure that I'm 100% correctly doing it right. maybe I'm missing something...
Basically, your front rim should be the same distance from the string on either side, or within a small amount of error. It sounds like you did it correctly.
If you confirm that the distance is equal, your wobble could be from a poorly balanced wheel, unless there's some kind of problem with your axle. How bad is the wobble?
That's the same exact test, in theory, except FOG's test includes those jackstands because attempting to hold the string while laying down on the ground and eyeballing it is pretty... dumb.Strife said:some pretty good pictures here, gonna try it like this...
