Wheel Balance. As carbon rims have become deeper, the longer valve stems have created a growing imbalance problem for the wheel. The rims themselves are already 2-8 grams heavier at the valve as the area has to be heavily reinforced with carbon to prevent collapse of the hole.  Then the inner tube overlap/seam are at the valve, (in tubulars, the base tape also overlaps here), the valve stem has a 2 ply rubber reinforcement at the valve, and finally the metal valve stem which is all heavier than the carbon fiber in the rest of the wheel.  In total, a 60mm deep wheel typically has 10-16 grams of imbalance at the valve which is barely noticeable to the rider, but an 82mm deep rim requires an additional 20-25mm of valve extender adding another 3-4 grams.

SpeedBalance Lacks Instructions

I bought a set of SpeedBalance in 2020. The new SpeedBalance comes with 2 units that appear to have weights in them. How do I use them? No instructions were included.

Speed balance

Best way to balance. I‘be used golf club lead weights before. Much more cost effective and convenient. Everyone should balance.

SpeedBalance

It balanced my aero wheel nicely. I had to add a bike computer magnet to the SpeedBalance add enough weight to counterbalance the valve stem though.

Easy way to balance a wheel

Easy to setup. For my rear wheel a smudge too little weight in the non valve blob to fully balance the wheel, but definitely close enough.
