Details

Avoid the expense, downtime and trouble of arranging tire changing services at a shop and gain the satisfaction of knowing the job was done perfectly (and is ready just when you need it). With this balancer and a couple of tire irons (plus a bead breaker for tubeless tires) anyone can get a precision balanced tire in a few minutes.
Method: Slowly spin, mark the low spot, repeat, add (tape it on) a temporary weight, spin, mark, repeat, re-weight, spin, repeat, etc… When wheel always stops at random points, securely attach the required weights and the job is finished. Ultra-low friction bearings make the process very sensitive to the smallest change in weight and position for super accurate results. Finely finished cantilever frame is easier to use than a conventional stand: lock the axle to a wheel and set the bearings into the saddles on the stand.
Imitation is usually confirmation of advantages and value, and at this writing there's now at least one copy of our original and pioneering cantilever design. But originals are nearly always better, and this stand is no exception. The Aerostich balancer uses larger bearings for maximum sensitivity and durability, and features a stronger and stiffer frame that doesn't flex or vibrate, and which provides more stability.  Also important is this balancer's still-unique removable axle design, a feature which will make your next balance job easier: Just insert the axle into your wheel, tighten the cones in place and then set the combined assembly onto the stand. You never wrestle with the entire stand while locking wheel into the cones. And this stand's removable axle design also allows for more compact storage.
Optional cup and cone type adapter fits most wheels used on single sided swing arms. 14mm axle also allows use of standard BMW Paralever wheel adapters (available from BMW). Strong frame and a durable gray powder coated finish make this a valued shop tool that will be a pleasure to use for years. Measures 18”×20.5”×10”. 10 lbs. Save time and money while getting the satisfaction of doing it yourself. Definitely a nice balance.

Why a Cantilever Wheel Balancer?

Years ago we sold a conventional wheel balancer. Big bolted-together sections of extruded aluminum, designed and made by a retired machinist. It worked great but was a little hard to store. Eventually the retired machinist stopped making them and we wanted an easier-to-store solution which didn't require borrowing extra jack-stands or chairs. Nobody had ever produced a cantilevered balancer. This one turned out better than we hoped...and remains completely unique. A few years ago legendary Harley Davidson flat track tuner Bill Werner (...see the AMA Hall of Fame) bought one and later reported: "Someone's finally come up with a better, smarter tool for balancing wheels. It's great!" You'll enjoy using this tool, even if you're not tuning pro race bikes. It's easier than other types, and ultra-accurate.
