My front Rolf disc wheel is going back for a second time in less than a month because the front spokes don't hold tension. When I first noticed - Rolf stated it was because it was incorrectly laced - well they said they found a better way to lace them to get more tension which to me is they were incorrectly laced to start with. I sent em back, they re-laced with a different pattern and sent them back. They stayed tensioned for one 40 mile ride. The next time on the bike - they clicked and pinged like you would not believe. I checked the spokes and they had loosened considerably. The rear has been ok spoke tension wise.
