I just picked up a NOS 2011 Marin Hawk Hill with WTB DX23 wheels. I'm just returning to the sport so I can't tell you much about them other than whats on the stickers and their website. My question is this. The first test ride I took I drove off a curb and it sounded horrible. I stopped and checked tension on the spokes and some feel much looser others. From my other research, wheels need some stress relief, but how long should I wait before I have them checked our or try to tension them myself. I don't really want to throw money after it, but I don't want a catastrophic failure either.
