    Not many two-leg bicycle wheel stands will go over 175mm. Some motorcycle stands might.

    double/custom extensions should do the trick, a machine shop should be able to make them easily enough.

    Seriously though, how can Fatback sell them if no-one can build them up - should they not be providing a solution along with the hub?

    No way to flip those extensions opposite? So that they curve away from the outer lock nut?

    You can build your own truing stand. I bought Roger Musson's "Professional Guide to Wheelbuilding". In this invaluable book, he lays out a DIY truing stand that can be modified to build any size hub wheel. Just make the base wider and the slots to adjust for width longer. Simple. He charges ~$15 or so for his work. I highly recommend it. Even a doofus like me was able to build up two wheels without issues.

    You have to drill out the holes on the "outside" and add some flat washers for the QR - but then you find that the nice curve on that side hits the freehub and the disc mount, so you have to cut some metal away:

    Actually, I think buying a latest version Park truing stand (which is the same as the old one with adapters) and then using the adapters would cover it.
    This isn't a "you're doing it wrong" topic.

    $15 worth of material, a bit of time, and if needed, throw a 12 pack at a welder ... Truing stand complete, minus paint.

    Glad to hear the OP's shop is modifying their stand to accommidate this hub ... They only need to do it once.
