    turing wheels with bladed spokes

    How do you true rims with bladed spokes? That aren't the traditional kind where the spokes cross three times. I've built and trued regular rims but never rims laced this style. Its a set of mavic cross ride disk rims and cross ride hubs. on a 2010 kona hei hei 100. If that helps

    You need a tool of the right size to prevent the bladed spokes from twisting.

    Really, if you can't figure it out then you shouldn't be touching it. Just sayin'.

    You can use an adjustable wrench to hold the spoke blades, but even then, I rarely use that or the 'correct' tool, unless the wheel is in disgusting shape, with seized nips. You almost always need to unwind the spokes, though.

    you don't have to use it but this thing is useful Park Tool Co. BSH-4 : Bladed Spoke Holder : Wheel & Spoke

    sometimes a spoke or nipple doesn't have perfect threading and wants to wind up no matter what you do so this thing comes in handy for that. but other than that, not really needed cause you can just center the spoke anyhow.
