Home of top quality spokes, hubs, rear suspension and soon rims, DT's international sales manager Daniel Berger told Cyclingnews that "we are really proud of our new Truing Stand. People have asked us to make one for a long time and we waited until we could build something really special."

Certainly a work of art as industrial design, DT's Truing Stand starts at 550 euros and with digital meters and other bells and whistles too complex for this non-wheel building reporter to fathom, the price can hit 1000 euros.

Probably not too much to pay for the pro shop or maniacal home hobbyist. DT had some cool new spokes, the Aerolite Black. A flat, black aero spoke (2.0/0.9/2.3), DT say that 64 cold forged Aerolites weigh just 278g in 264mm length. www.dtswiss.com
