spoke adjustment

Recommended Posts

Could anyone tell me how to tighten up spokes on a new machine without a torck rench, (can't get a T. rench till Tues.) I know to skip every 3 spokes and keep tightening and turning a quarter inch at a time, but how tight do I get the spoke? just listen for a high ping? if I hit the spoke?

Pretty much. You are basically wanting to hear the same pitch on each spoke. I try to get them as close as I can, but I am actually more concerned about eliminating the "thud" that goes with a loose spoke.
