How do you install a tennis ball in your spokes/wheel...? Does it require having to unlace the wheel and than relacing it...?

If so...I might not do it as I have no spoke lacing and wheel truing experience. I am hoping that you don't have to unlace the wheel and can just jam/stick the tennis ball in there somehow.

You have to ride flatland in a tennis court and get hit by one. You don't just get one son, you have to EARN it

uhhh...why would you want a tennis ball in your wheel? I mean, I understand putting a couple of playing cards there to make your bike sound like a motorcycle...but a tennis ball?

In all seriousness...what does that do?

It offsets the weight of your wheel so you can roll further at a low speed. It's for all these kids that are too scared to put a couple of cranks in

you can put a slice in the ball and hide your WEED inside it.

Not all people with tennis balls smoke pot. Some people enjoy the extra rotational weight.

because kids are stupid and think it'll magically make their wheels never come out of true. everyone I've seen with a tennis ball in their spokes had that exact explanation, save for a few.

offsetting the rotational weight like Steve said is the only real benefit.
