HOW IT WORKS

Islandix Wheel Analytics reads data from 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 tool 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.

Tensio futurism

More analytics—Islandix provides two modules for interfacing with bicycle tensiometers.

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. Or change whenever. Read more…

The Tools

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 all cables. Visualizations are served locally over Wifi or USB, no cloud required.

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

Optional: indicators

Add two Mitutoyo digital indicators, each with a high contrast display. Includes premium contact points: a bearing roller tip for lateral inspection and a flat tip for radial. Or use your own indicators.

FAQ

More information for mechanics doing their research. If you don't find the answer to your question, please ask.

No fixture?

Wheel Analytics adapts the truing stand you already have, minimizing cost while preserving the tactile experience of your workbench — muscle memory is a valuable resource. Wheelbuilding applications can be controlled using the Islandix duplex foot pedal.

Display?

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 (which may change from time to time).

Compatibility?

Compatible with 801.11b/g/n wireless networks with or without WPA2 encryption. Or connect with USB networking on Mac OS, Windows and Linux using builtin drivers. Returns accepted within 30 days of delivery for any reason including compatibility.

Which tensiometers?

Wheel Analytics isn't tied to a specific tensiometer. It talks to any tool with a Mitutoyo-compatible digital indicator. Deflection tables can be entered according to your tool. Inquire to purchase digital indicators for retrofitting your tensiometer.

Documentation?

The system includes a printed manual describing setup and operation in detail. Color diagrams unpack data rendered in wheelbuilding visualizations. You're invited to preview the manual to learn more about Wheel Analytics.

Measurement 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.

Reports?

Wheel Analytics is a tool for building wheels rather than a tool for building reports about wheels. Nevertheless each visualization has a printable version, which can be saved for record keeping or sharing. These suppress tool interfaces leaving wheel data intact.

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 penalty for purchasing now.

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. Non-Islandix accessories such as indicators, power adapter and cables carry a one year limited warranty.
