Are there any disavantages to having too much tension in your spokes? I just retensioned a wheelset and those spokes are really tight. Not nipple stripping tight, but barely any movement when you squeeze 2 together. Was this a bonehead move? The wheelset will be used on DS hardtail or DH rig. I've searched the forums and found alot of info on spokes being too loose, but found little on too tight. Wheelbuilding/fixing is one of the few things I don't have confidence in when tinkering with bikes.
