I think it's about time to get my wheels trued, and since I haven't learned how and don't want to ruin the ones I've got, I'll have to take them to a shop. But, I was thinking about relacing them so the spokes would have a hand-laced pattern instead of a machine-built pattern and just letting the shop do the tensioning and truing. Has anyone done this? Any reason not to?
Also, I don't trust my LBS with this, so I was thinking about driving to another town to have it done. Does anyone know if the shop in Tyler (TX, USA) is any good with wheels? Can you recommend any others in the East Texas area?
