Can a "flexing" wheel be tightened up?
Not sure if my header was clear, this is what I mean:
I have a Madone 5.2 and with it came Bontrager Racelites, the 2008 wheelset model, not the older problematic model. Anyways I've had no problems with them - I weight 207 pounds - with 1000 miles on them.
I noticed a while back that they do tend to be quite flexy (I'm running at 110psi front / 120psi back).
I compared the spoke tension (simply by flexing them with my hand) with my other Mavic Aksium wheelset and the Mavic's are noticeably tighter.
My question: is it possible for an LBS to tighten the spokes on the Racelites to get rid of some of that flex?
EDIT: Regarding why ppl do not like Racelites; I haven't read anywhere that Racelites are flexy, just the spokes breaking too often... so I did do my homework before asking this question.
