I scored a nice used Park Tool TS-2 Truing Stand off Craigslist for a really great price. I am not a professional mechanic, but I am trying to be in a position to be totally independent of my LBS regarding service/maintenance.
The issue is this: When truing wheels, should one ever decrease spoke tension when fine-tuning true?
I ask because I have seen confusing information. I read, I think in Park's Blue Book that "newbies" should not attempt to decrease spoke tension to achieve trueness. That is to say, if your wheel is pulling to the left, just tighten spoke(s) leading to the right hub flange at the deviation center. I have seen contrary info that says to tighten on the right, but loosen opposite side spoke(s) by same amount of movement.
Which is recommended by experienced mechanics?
