Wheel truing

Hello all,

Had a gander at my front wheel yesterday and it seems to be a little out of true. Not my much -- a couple of mm if my eyes are a useful guide -- but as I understand it these things matter. They're Khamsins. If I wanted to learn how to fix this myself, what's the procedure? What tools/equipment would I need?

    Have a look on Youtube - there are a few videos on how to do minor tweaks like you are describing.
    I am a firm believer in the principle of "monkey see, monkey do" and for simple stuff it hasn't failed me yet.

    I assume that these have "grouped" spoking pattern and thus I expect are more difficult to true than conventional wheels. Take it VERY slowly when trying to pull rim one way or the other I suggest.
