- Tech Fact of the Day: Our wheels are held "true" (or round) by spokes. Spokes are the thin metal rods that radiate from the hub of the wheel. When a wheel is true and round, all the spokes have equal tension. When a wheel starts to wobble, it means that there is uneven tension among the spokes. A blow to the wheel, running over a pothole, or hitting a curb, for example, can cause uneven tension. This can be easily fixed by re-adjusting (tightening or loosening) the tension of the spokes with a spoke wrench. On occasion, the tension is so great on a spoke that it actually breaks and needs to be replaced. Tension this great is caused, in large part, by the additional weight that we are carrying on our bikes and pulling in our B.O.B. trailers.
