    Damn Wheels

    I would like to say that it was because I ride so hard, but in reality it is because I suck so badly.

    If you build it you get to jump it, forget them.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    how exactly do you check spoke tension so much, just go over the wheel with a spoke wrench? how tight should they be?

    actually, double butted. so you see, my point is, if you take good care of your wheels, they will just about last forever...

    It's actually a Tioga Factory DH rim. I haven't seen those at Walmart yet....

    I think WCH prolly is more correct in the assumption department regarding spoke tension.

    I ran that rim on my Bullit for almost a year. Then stripped it for StinkyOne who, I believe, built the wheel himself. He checks spoke tension often, but he also cases pretty often too. All 220lbs of him.

    I had just checked the spoke tension the day before. I go into my LBS, The Path, about two to three times a week just to maintain the wheel love. I just cased a semi large wood lipped double--really badly. Luckily I didn't crash; I rolled/bounced away. I also managed to put a pretty good flat spot on my fairly new Azonic Outlaw. Oh-well I am getting really good at building wheels!

    Well, any way you cut it, it would appear that you've got spoke tension issues with that wheel now .
