    You can ride the frame until the tube cracks. Just keep an eye on it.

    With 36 spokes 11oKg should be enough. 130 won't hurt if the wheel stays true after stress relieving. If the tension is too high the wheel will warp when stress relieving.

    The grooves are too deep for my liking. They make excellent stress risers and may fail quickly. Good way to get a new helmet and CT scan.

    You can clean up the check valve and replace the o-ring. A new leather gasket will make it as good as new. Mines about 21 years old and still works.
