Hey, I got my wheel trued about 200 miles ago and it is now out of true again. It's a very slight wobble (doesn't touch brake pads) and the same spoke seems to be loose again. Should I just leave it the way it is? I'm using Mavic Askium's and I am about 160lbs. Thanks.

Non-driveside? If I were your mechanic, I'd treat all the NDS spokes with a dab of DT SpokeFreeze to head off further issues (among other things).

Sounds like spoke tension was too low after the last job. Take it back and mention you just had it trued. Maybe get a different person to check it out.

Yep, either the tension is too low or the rim is warped.
