Sounds like good advice, Stretch. I did a little more looking around and found this: http://www.buchananspokes.net/catego...eous_tools.asp Seems like a more prudent approach. When the spring rubber goes on, I think I might give them a try. I still need to figure out how many it takes to have any real effect. Anybody got any experience with these?
