I have searched and read and searched some more. I hope that someone is willing to jump in here.
I am trying to do an alignment on a 42. Here is what I think I know.
- I have to have the hubs and wheels themselves properly aligned, (I have confirmed they are, my spokes are good)
- I need to ensure my steering (forks) are absolutely straight. (I think I have this, but its very fiddly and perhaps there is a better way than what I have done)
- I figure I better start at the front wheel and ensure its absolutely centered within the forks.
- Once the front is centered I can align the rear wheel to the front wheel using straight edge or laser beam to give straight line.
ok, if this is basically correct,
I find my wheel is not centered its 1/2 - 3/4" over to the right fork. (from saddle view)
Could I ask for guidance on what is required to move that wheel over to be more centered between the forks, am i missing something simple here?
Does anyone have a good procedure for performing overall alignment which they could share as I am fairly certain I am not the only one curious. hmmm or again maybe I am over complicating things?
