Rear wheel dish/tension problem
I had a Record/Open Pro rear wheel rebuilt this summer by the shop I bought it from to begin with and I'm not sure that they had their ace wheel builder on the job that day. It's been creaky ever since, and in spite of rebuilding the rear hub twice, the noise is still there. I think it's a spoke tension issue. The non-drive side spoke tension is pretty loose, and the rim is off center towards the non-drive side as well. Drive-side tension is actually good, if not a little high. Basically, I can't tighten the non drive spokes or it'll pull the rim even more out of dish and I can't tighten the drive side to dish it up because the tension's so high to begin with. I'm gonna rebuild it over the weekend and wanted to see what the wheel gurus here thought about the problem. Given this situation, would you say that the wrong size spokes are in place on one or both sides of the wheel? I went to DT and another spoke calculator and came up with 296 non drive and 294 drive, but I haven't pulled a spoke from the wheel to see what's in it now. Anything else I should be wary of? I've built and rebuilt wheels before, so I'm fairly comfortable with the procedure and I've got plenty of time with 40-60 mph winds expected tomorrow.
