Never realized the problem a flat spot would cause. Will remove the tire and adjust if needed.

As you say, if all else fails, I'll take it to the shop.
The method you described is NOT stress relieving...also...doing what you do risks tacoing the wheel.

5000+ wheels built since 1984...


1. I do not claim to be an expert in bicycle mechanics despite my experience.
2. I like anyone will comment in other areas.
3. I do not own the preexisting concepts of DISH and ERD.
4. I will provide information as I always have to others that I believe will help them protect themselves from unscrupulous mechanics.
5. My all time favorite book is:

Kahane, Howard. Logic and Contemporary Rhetoric: The Use of Reason in Everyday Life
