Wheel build - Final tension questions
I just finished building a wheel (front WTB speed disc hub on a 700c mavic cxp22). My question is as follows:
Most of the spokes are at 22-25 on my park tensiometer, but maybe 8/32 spokes are lower than 20 (maybe 4 per side). Should I raise the tension on these spokes and then true (radial + lateral) again?
When I built my first set of wheels on formula track hubs, I did not have these few loose spokes. Sheldon's site for wheelbuilding is of course offline.
Thanks for your help.
