It's pretty easy once you understand the job of the spokes and the pattern. Truing is pretty straight forward. Almost everyone at the shop I work at can true. You can true your wheels in 10 minutes to keep em straight. Truing after lacing is the hardest part. Took me a couple hours each wheel. I'm a perfectionist lol
You should talk to someone local to teach you. It's really easy man.

Oh, I fondly remember the days when truing could take an hour or two. Enjoy it while it lasts(it won't) wink

I think that "truing lasting hours" is part inexperience, part perfectionist in all of us & part excitement. "...ooh.... I ALMOST have it perfect.... maybe just one little bit more here..... & one little turn there..... & one more here.... &..."

I can usually get a wheel true within less than 0.08mm in about 6 minutes using a dial indicator. That's probably a little excessive though; even spoke tension is far more important.

Lol that's so me, I was truing a buddies wheel, and I'm like, "Yo, come here I finished!' Then comes over and I was like, "Wait, give me second I've got it almost PERFECT!" I did that to him a couple times before he got his bike back lmaolaughing

I don't crash, I do random gravity checks...

It took me so long because I'm a super perfectionist and I just wanted them straighter than. The tricky part was the weld on the Chrome
