when i went for a test ride afterwards, i could hear them unwinding - that crackling sound as the spoke tension pulls on the thread interface with the nipple.
do you know how i should take the twist out?
Attach some paper flags to the spokes. So when you tighten them you can see the twist as the flags moves. To unwind the twist, overtighten then back off (so for example, tighten 1/4 of a turn and back of 1/8 of a turn).
