for reassurance get an old uncle to build the wheel
its usually a 2hr job and you should at least sit through it and learn a thing or 2 about how your wheel is laced and tensioned .... fascinating

Hi, can anybody suggest me someone or a shop around east or central area for truing my Dura Ace wheelset? After came back from mount faber, one of spokes was very loose and the rim became extremely wobble right and left as well as up and downSome shops i went doesn't have the tools because the nipples are bigger than standard. Then the last shop i went can only do simple truing without tension setting. So the spoke is still very loose and the rim a bit wobble up and down (radial side) and slightly on the lateral side. Bought it second hand, but love it since used to be quite perfect. So i guess i need a good truing now
Thank you

Should had read this article earlier. I just sent for the GXP BB to be re-greased. (GXP BB need to re-grease after about 100 hours usage).

just a little info every new wheel set or custom build should go for at least one trueing as due to spokes stretch and embedded into hub become loose , so it should be tune up but i was putting advise on some FB cycling replied to me was it was not call for not until 2 yrs after his spokes break , wheel build should have use linseed oil or spoke preb , linseed oil will help to prevent spokes from winding up during building but will become gummy after a day or two that will create a temp bond and also prevent spokes coming loose , spokes breakage due to unequal tension just contributing some info
lately i have just come across a newly factory build wheel with unequal tension and seizure of 2 spokes
front 15 /20 spokes out of tension rear 18 /24 this pair of wheel just a couple of month old and free wheel almost dry up inside
do take not if getting a new pair of new wheel do check with shop if they provide first true setting and tension setting

Hi all just to share my experience last 3 days i had a nightmare about my  carbon wheel. I  came to see one of the home based shop to check and he recomend my wheel to be trued so i left my bike to him. After a day i recieved a call from him and said that my spokes of my rare wheel are all loosen and canot be trued. So as i want to stock my wheel i told him to get remedy on it,. I waited and he told me to pick up the bike and just pay 20sgd for 2 wheels. I Surprised when i collected my bike suddenly left wheel touching now the  left chain stay. I asked him what happened he saod my wheel canot be trued but he sugest to bring to other shop hence he blaimed my spokes all loosen. I dont believed that my spokes are losen and canot be tightend coz before i came to see him i just rode my bike 78km and if spokes are loose my opinion shuold break the spokes. I dont have the choice not to pay him coz he spoil my stuff.
I visited togo and i found 1 guy  with his post in togo forum he is near to my block. I approched him and did not concluded to my problem and just ask me to bring to his house the wheel. I was surprized that my will spokes arw over tightened and almost going to break. Luckily he managed to save my wheel and ion the same day i get it bak to me and just payed 20 bucks. This guy is not making money for truing coz he have his work and truing to him is just a partime job. I highy recomend this guy just call 97895334 and he will attend to u very acomodating guyy! Tnx bro my wheel is safe !
