I've done some searching and reading about spoke tension, and I think maybe I need some maintenance on my rear wheel.
According to what I've read, spokes on a front wheel should have roughly the same tension on both sides, spokes on the drive side of the rear wheel should have roughly the same tension, and spokes on the non-drive side should have roughly the same tension, but not necessarily the same as the drive side.
"Roughly" means that due to imperfections in rims and spokes, variance in tension is required to get the rim true. So far so good?
I recently had some wheels built -- 36 spoke Salsa Delgado, Shimano 105, DT Comp Butted. Sure enough, front spokes seem roughly the same tension, drive side roughly the same, non-drive side has less tension, but also has a lot of variance and some spokes seem ridiculously loose.
The wheels are professionally built and straight and true so part of me says I shouldn't mess with them, but on the other hand, the spokes that seem loose seem like they could be tightened a bit with no ill-effect because they're not doing much now anyway (?).
Would I be foolish to carefully put some tension on the loose spokes, or is this just part of sound maintenance? If I did it, I would do so slowly, carefully, a little at a time while checking both round and true.
Or... do I leave well enough alone? Taking to a shop at this point really isn't an appealing option because at some point I have to learn to do this myself.
