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?
A quick way to check if the rim is true is to use a piece of heavy gauge bare copper wire clamped to, or wrapped around, the fork tube with the end near the side of the rim. Give the wheel a spin and you'll see immediately if it's true or not. I would hope it's not the new TKC but it could be internal on the tire (plys messed up) and not visible.
