    Spokes keep coming loose?

    Hi all,
    I couldn't find anything when I searched so I decided to post. I had a spoke come loose a few months back (so when i put the bike on the ground it made a tinging sound). So I asked my LBS if I could just tighten it back up and go on with my day and was met with a resounding "NO, bring it in." Well he closes when I get off work, so needless to say I just tightened it back and it's been good for about 3 months. However, now another spoke has came loose (different one). Can I just tighten that one back up and go on about my day or should I really schedule a day off just to take it down to this guy? Also, I'd rather do it myself so if it's something u can explain (but not as simple as just tightening it back up) I'll just do it myself. Thanks for the help!

    If you don't know how spoke tension affects the wheel you should let a mechanic tension and true the wheel.

    Enjoy
