    You can use to true, build and dish the wheel, but do not try to ride with it on a regular fork.

    Thanx for these

    If it's possible for you guys , what's the exact distance it adds on each side ?

    I just have one wheel to check , wouldn't want to pay+-25$ just for that.

    I measured the following:

    -Disc side 14mm,
    - 20.4mm on the other.

    Hope this helps.

    I just center the rim on the hub (not the flanges). If you don't have a centering gage on your truing stand, just flip the wheel and adjust for the same offset on both sides.
