I recently had a new front tyre fitted. The local bike shop does not have an electronic wheel balancer. I watched the mechanic fit the new tyre to the rim, then he turns to me and says.... "don't watch this part" in a joking manner of course. He proceeded to get 2 20ltr oil drums and put them side by side on his work bench and balanced the wheel between the 2 drums. He spun the tyre by hand and gauged with his eye where to put the weights on the spokes. I went home and told my step dad (our family bike expert ) He said, yep, thats called static balancing. Thats what we did in the old days. What I want to know is should I take the bike somewhere to get the wheel electronically balanced, or is static balancing going to give the same result and I should just leave it be?
