Just built a wheel, and although it=92s not fully tensioned yet, it=92s a g=
ood guess that the drive-side spokes are too long by one mm.
I can feel the spokes under two layers of rim tape (Velox Fond de Jante).
Two-inch tires will be mounted and run at about forty psi.
Is it worth the effort to unlace the wheel and start over?
Any advice appreciated,
