Wheel Analytics

Designed for accuracy and job satisfaction. Three years in development, tested by professional mechanics.

Digital upgrade

Adapts the truing stand you already have so you don't have to discard an old friend. Same muscle memory. Same tactile experience. Wheelbuilding applications can be controlled using the Islandix duplex foot pedal.

Browser-based

Display visualizations on the device you already own or even more than one. Supporting most smartphones, tablets and personal computers, Wheel Analytics renders in modern browsers so you can stick to the platform you prefer.

Transistor truing

The system is designed to improve your wheels and provide receipts for your efforts. It stimulates multi-dimensional thinking, which speeds wheelbuilding and repairs. More important than anything it fosters a state of mental flow.

HOW IT WORKS

Islandix Wheel Analytics takes data from connected digital indicators and creates useful visualizations for wheelbuilding.

Home

Connect

Connect the truing stand indicators, duplex foot pedal and power cable.

Home

Configure

Add Wheel Analytics to your wireless network or connect using USB.

Home

Create

Build wheels in two dimensions. Zero in on repairs faster than ever.

DEE-EYE-TRU

Wheel Analytics is Digitally Integrated Truing. The system includes two modules for truing bicycle wheels.

Two dimensional

Lateral and radial alignment are plotted in a unified view to support two dimensional reasoning.

Realtime data

Data from digital indicators is continuously and automatically updated for a live view of alignment.

History tracking

Extremes of alignment are tracked so the most deviant locations can be quickly identified for repair.

Stop zeroing

Lateral and radial midpoints are relocated to the center. This means no zeroing physical indicators. Ever.

Tolerance testing

Build consistent wheels by setting a tolerance target. Get spatial feedback on progress toward completion.

Teaching tool

Wheel Analytics suggests adjustments using decision logic intended to improve lateral and radial together.

Home

Tensio futurism

More analytics—the system includes two modules for interfacing with bicycle tensiometers.

Home

Not another app

No apps to download, install or update. No app store. Wheel Analytics supports mobile platforms using the builtin web browser you already have. Or use an alternative browser of your choosing. Or change whenever.

The Kit

Wheel Analytics is sold as a bundle for upgrading your existing truing stand to digital. The kit includes:

Home

Islandix WA-1 controller

The WA-1 controller is the brains of the operation. It connects two digital indicators, foot pedal and power. Visualizations are served over Wifi or USB (to compatible systems). Power adapter included.

Home

Islandix FP-2 pedal

The FP-2 puts digital controls at your feet so the muscle memory of working with your hands remains the same. Includes a generous 3m/9ft cable for routing under and behind deep workbenches.

Home

IP54 digital indicators

Mitutoyo-compatible digital indicators, each with a high-contrast display that rotates 330°. Includes a bearing roller tip for lateral and a flat contact tip for radial. Connection cables included.

FAQ

Here's more information for people doing their research. If you don't find the answer to your question, please ask.

Can I choose units?

Truing modules show all values in millimeters, performing a conversion in case an indicator is set to inch mode. Tension calibrations may be entered in Newtons or kgf. Tension values may be rendered in Newtons or kgf according to user preference.

Documentation?

The system includes a 20 page manual describing setup and operation in detail. Numerous color diagrams unpack the data rendered in wheelbuilding visualizations. Please inquire if you'd like a copy of the manual as a pre-sales matter.

Free updates?

Fixes and features can be added with downloadable software updates. Reserving the right to distribute new applications as paid upgrades, all ideas currently on the drawing board will be available at no charge. No early adopter penalty.

Compatible tensiometers?

Wheel Analytics isn't tied to a specific tensiometer. It works with any tool having a Mitutoyo-compatible digital indicator with data output. Conversion tables can be entered according to your tool. Inquire about buying retrofit digital indicators.

Integrated solution?

Initial shipments will be available as digital upgrade kits for your existing truing stand. According to demand Islandix may offer a complete truing stand bundle and/or a compatible tensiometer. Toolmakers interested in collaborating, please email.

Unbundled option?

In the long term a bare bundle of WA-1 controller and FP-2 foot pedal will be available, allowing customers to source indicators and cables—Mitutoyo or compatible—in their local markets. For now it's digital kits including accessories.

Specifications?

The WA-1 controller works with 802.11b/g/n 2.4Ghz wireless networks with/without WPA2 encryption. Where drivers available, systems may connect over USB (tested: Mac OS X 10.14, Windows 10 Professional). Visualizations render in modern browsers.

Compatibility?

If you have a reliable wireless network, it's probable Wheel Analytics will work for you. Most platforms capable of running a modern browser will work. Wheel Analytics is guaranteed for compatibility—returns accepted within 30 days of delivery.

Warranty?

The WA-1 controller and FP-2 foot pedal are warranted against defects in manufacturing for a period of two years from the date of purchase. Bundled accessories such as indicators, power adapter and cables carry a one year warranty.

Indicator attachment?

Wheel Analytics indicators are shipped with a lug back installed. This is a common way to attach indicators to a truing stand, for example using the Park Tool TS-2Di kit. A flat back is also included for installations that mount by the 9.5mm stem.

Sold out?

Tentatively kits are manufactured and assembled in batches, released monthly. A delivery from a future batch is secured with a pre-order deposit. Interested customers can request a notification when a new batch is made available for pre-order.
