ELP_JC Posted May 12, 2006 Share Posted May 12, 2006 Need your collective help. Didn't have a problem balancing the Contis last year, but can't get this Strada balanced. Tire/wheel combo is squeaky clean, 2 red dots mounted on wheel's heavy spot, inflated to 42 psi, valve stem cap in place, axle adapters tight on wheel. My question is at what point do you know you went from too little to too much weight on my scenario described below? Or do I have a more serious problem? Here's my sequence of events so far, rotating the wheel 3 times on each step for verification: - Wheel settles on heavy point, opposite to valve stem. No problem there. - Applied one square (7gr or 1/4 oz) at opposite side (12 o'clock). No difference. Everything still normal. - Applied 2nd square. Stopped at 2 o'clock every time (hmmm). - Applied 3rd square. Stopped at 4 every time (weird). - Applied 4th square. Stops at 6. Obviously too much. What the hell is the logic to know when I went over? When doing the Contis, after adding weights, they went from staying at the same place (weights at 12 o'clock), to either being blanced or going to the 6 o'clock position (too much). Am I missing something here? Thanks for your help. Link to comment
