You may have been following my saga, where - I - as a know nothing bike dude just loosened all my spokes on my rear wheel and started over with Zinn's book in hand (due to loosening spokes). My LBS closed and I am my own mechanic now since the next nearest one is too far to visit for anything other than a major overhaul. Over an hour away by car.
So everything has been running ok so far after I did it - 14 miles so far and no new loose spokes or wobbles.
I attempted to dish the rear wheel and true it with homemade tools.
My mind was telling me the wheel wasn't perfectly centered the frame. So I attached a zip tie to my rear triangle this evening and cut them which left about a 3 mm gap between rim and triangle with the zip tie. I then flipped my rim and now there is a 1.5-2mm gap (hard to measure - but less than 3. So it is a little over a mm off from rim to triangle on both sides.
From my prior reading - when you flip the tire and the space changes, that is a dish error. Please correct me if this is wrong.
So here are my choices, and I will defer to you guys.
1. I have a laterally and radially true rim with a 1-1.25mm dish error. It doesn't affect my brakes and if I were not OCD I'd probably never notice it. It won't harm anything - leave it alone.
2. Start over. It will harm something.
So will riding on a wheel with a slight dish error (salsa delgado cross rims 32 tires - if it matters) mess anything up.
Also can you confirm by what I'm saying that is a dish error and 'not' a frame error.
Thanks (I am learning a lot now about wheels).
