So i have had my new bike for a week now and put quite a few km on it, and now that my wheels have settled some they are snot quite true any more. How long till they fully settle in? i am heading to the lbs today to get a spoke wrench. Should i just keep truing the wheels as they settle, until it stays put, or have the lbs do a full truing on them say in a month or so?
thanks in advace
ps, rims in question are 32h deep v's

I have always trued wheels as needed, regardless of whether or not they were new. I wouldn't wait till some arbitrary amount of time goes by. Riding untrue wheels can make them worse and not ride as well as they could. Take them to the LBS if you don't know what you are doing.

I have done plenty upon tons of research and am very mechanically inclined. Just got off work and heading to the lbs now. It just needs very minor adjustments so i plan to go about it slow and steady. Thanks for the tip.
