Stress Testing Spokes

When handbuilding wheels it’s important to stress the spokes while the wheel is being brought up to tension.   A finished wheel should have even spoke tension all the way around.  Here at the shop I repurpose old spokes as hangers among other things.  The CVP hubed wheels on the left weigh about 7lbs each so they are defiantly putting some stress on the hanger spokes.
