I have a brand new Anakee 3. I can take the TKC off the spoked wheel and try the Anakee. If the vibration goes away its the TKC. Any other advise?

Anyone know of someone local who can "true" a spoke wheel if that's the issue?
Pull the axel run it through the wheel and set on a pair of jack stands. Check the radial run out with a straight edge against the tire tread. If the tire is out of round you will have a high spot somewhere.

Then rotate the straight edge 90 degrees against the side wall and check trueness of the rim. If you have wobble there you will need to true the wheel by re-tensioning the spokes. If thoses are Woody's wheels they should come to you already trued.
