Reading the other topic about wheel builders and wheel design and construction comments.
I was just curious, and this applies to more the normal higher spoke count wheels, how many miles do you guys normally see to bed in spokes, nipples and basically the entire wheel so it remains tight with minimal if any trueing and tensioning?
Our latest tandem had, and I believe the previous owner, only about 30 easy miles of road use. We are putting a lot of miles on it in minimal calender time...it's getting ridden quite a bit.
I've already tensioned and trued these wheels once, and will do them again tonight. We have discs, 3 cross, 40 spoke, velocity rimmed DT hubbed oem Co-Motion wheels.
I plan to stay on top of them, what do you figuire, a few retensions over a couple hundred miles, or should I relace to a different pattern on account of the discs?
