In Part 1 we saw rims deform from tire pressure causing spoke tension drop and discussed the role of tire dimensions, noticing road tubeless clinchers have the most potential to amplify tension drop.
In Part 2 we established that design, not manufacturing inconsistency, makes for odd matches and extreme tension drop situations.
Here in Part 3, let’s ask what builders can do to minimize negative influences of tension drop. After all, builders invest spoked structures with tension and answer for wheel performance. Read more →
