and a few more pointers,,

great info Creeper and Django loco,,,,,

1,,,when it comes to tone,,every 4th spoke ie all the spokes going in the same rotation should definitely sound the same

2,,,if ya hear a change in pitch,,make sure the spokes aren't touching each other,,which they often do

3,,,no mention was made of using an indicator of sorts,,,ie a means of referencing your latitudinal and longtitudinal run-out and hence knowing if you are actually truing your wheel ,,,,getting closer or further away from your detination,,,,otherwise IMHO you are just blindly tightening spokes
