I was just servicing my new '08 Cannondale Tandem and noticed that one of teh spokes sounded dead. The bike only has a few hundred miles on it. So I throw it into bike truing stand and whip-out the Park tensionometer. WOW!! The tension was all over the place. On the disc side, 50 Kgf on one spoke, 95 on the next one. On the drive side, 76 on one 105 on the other.
Anyone know what the recommended drive side should be? The hub is white industries and the spokes are straight 2.0.
I have built many sets of my oun mountain bike wheels, so it's no big deal to fix. I'm just amazed it's out so far only after a few rides.
I'm going to adjust the drive side to 95, and the disc side should fall out to be about 85 I would guess. If anything, that should be on the cautious side of the tension range.
Thanks in advance.
