Howdy ~ It just doesn't "feel" right so here I go, I'll keep it short as I can...
Laceing 32h 3X 29"
Disk Side = 290
Drive Side = 292
Turn ALL nipps thight just to the end of the spoke threads
Turn ALLL nipps tight 3 turns still loose so ALL nipps 3 more turns
Ok getting a bit of tension but still loose so ALL nips 2 turns tight
So 8 turns in now
Alright now I got some tension, lets spin it, OH but WAIT..look at my DISH
About 1/2 the rim distance towards the Drive Side
Looking at the spoke ends they are ALL at about the bottom of the slot on top of every nipp.
OK turn Disk side 2 x tight better but need more towards Disk Side
Turn Disk side tight 1 x and turn Drive side loose 1x
OK good dish now with a slight wave so I work the majic and make the wheel spin true, BUTT >>
Looking at the spoke ends my Disk side it WAY at the TOP of the nipps and the Drive side is BELOW the bottom of the nip's slot arrrgggg
^^that is too much difference right?
Feel like I wnat to buy 16 288s and get rid of thoes 290s?
When you first start to achive tension shouldn't dish be ALOT closer than what I have to start with?
I did this twice,t he first time I saw the spoke ends at the very top of the nipps I loosed it all up back to the start at the bottom of the threads...
Second tension attempt gave me same results
Is my Disk side spoke too long?
Thanks For reading and replying
