That's the problem.... The only professionals here that I actually would take my bike to are busy and I'd be without the wheel for a good week. The other shop here is crap. I took a wheel to have them do the same thing to and when I got it back, while it was true, some spokes were tight and some you could turn the nipple with your hand. I even asked them to check the tension, but I guess they didn't hear that.
Edit: Think it would be a good idea to invest in the tools to do this myself? Get a book and start doing my own wheels?
