I have a set of WTB LaserDisc Trail 29er wheels and I'd like to take good care of them.
In an effort to facilitate long use I have purchased a Spoke Tensionometer (Park TM-1). I already own a truing stand.
I spoke with WTB and they told me to shoot for the same tension on both sides of the wheels of approximately 110kgf. I thought the numbers are supposed to be different for drive on the rear and disc on the front but he assured me this was not the case here.
1) Is that correct?
2) Upon using the TM-1 I have found spoke tensions all over the board ranging from 61kgf to 122kgf. (The rear wheel is a little out of true.)
3) Should I remove the tire when truing and tensioning the wheel? Will I achieve better results this way?
4) Is there anything else I should take into consideration?
