Any point in trying to adjust spokes on opposite side of the wheel?
Hey. I've wondered for a while now if there's any method to trying to adjust the tension of spokes which are far away from whatever it is that I'm trying to correct?
Like, if there's a hop in the wheel, with the rim going in towards the hub, but the tension in the spokes all around the hop is already lower than anywhere else on the wheel, could I add (very little) tension in many other spokes in some kind of pattern to pull in the rim elsewhere, and thus push it out at the inward hop? Or maybe pulling the rim to left on one side of the wheel to get some pull to the right on the opposite side?
It seems like there should be cases where this is desirable given a rim which isn't quite perfectly centred and aligned on the hub. (which is the point of the exercise, I guess)
Edit: this is assuming a best case scenario with a nice round, flat rim.

Reason: perfect rim
