    Is there a good wheel truing stand for DH?

    Does anyone have a set up that works well, and can adapt to 20 mm front hubs and 150 by 12 mm rear hubs?

    I've seen the Park model, but reviews on it said it was great for road wheels but not MTB with thru axles.

    Thanks for any input.

    The Park Professional with the extensions.
    Park Tool Co. TS-2EXT : Truing Stand Upright Extension : Wheel Truing Stands and Accessories

    Works with any through axle hub.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    I always have just slid the axle through the hub and set it in the v's on my TS-2, never had a problem that way. I always assumed those extensions were for truing 29er wheels with tires mounted.

    Same, just use the axle in the stand, works fine. And yes, those extensions were for the old TS-2 stand where you had to take a tire off a 29r wheel to get it to fit, if you have a TS-2.2 those extensions aren't necessary.
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.
