"Because I ride a bmx bike, I end up bending my rim a lot," said an inventor from Brooklyn, N.Y. "I used to use my brakes as guides to true my rim, but since I am not using brakes anymore, I needed an alternative. This led me to develop this simple-to-use tool."

He developed the patent-pending STAY TRUED to allow for accurate wheel truing at an economical price. The unit ends the process of having to take the wheel off the bicycle in order to detect where the rim is bent. It eliminates the need to take the rim to a bicycle mechanic for professional services. The device ensures that the rim is true upon completion. All of this saves time, effort and money. Furthermore, the accessory features an easily portable, lightweight design.

The original design was submitted to the Manhattan office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
