    back wheel tension--ok to ride?

    Hi all,

    I'm about 160 lbs and have about 2k miles on my Askium's. I noticed that a spoke on the non-drive side is a bit more loose than the others. Is this ok? I took it to a shop who said that it was alright and that there was nothing to worry about. Just want other opinions..

    thanks!

    Depending how much 'a bit' is, I'd be worried... those are a pretty low spoke count wheel.

    If it's only just discernible that's one thing, but if it's significant I'd be getting the wheel re-tensioned.

    If I try to wiggle it, it can wiggle about 1-2mm. I tried to pluck it and it does have a different sound than the other non-drive side spokes.
