|Was wondering any of you guys have any experience on tuning the DA wheelset, i have read a review stating that the wheelset can be tuned to the rider's need, probably stiffer or otherwise.
any comments on this?

|You mean like loose spokes to make the wheel flexy, wobbly, and prone to spoke breakage and going out of true vs. a properly tensioned wheel? Makes no sense to me!|

|I read the review you are referring to. It's too bad the LBS took advantage of the guy's stupidity. You cannot 'tune' a wheel (stiffness or otherwise) without replacing parts of it. The spokes in the WH-7701 are at high tension. Reducing the tension would be stupid. Increasing it would not affect the wheel's stiffness, and would be stupid.|| |
