I had a set of Arch 29er rims built on hope pro 2 hubs, don't recall exactly what spokes/nipples were used.

I have been having a problem with a some spokes loosing complete tension over the course of a ride or two. It's primarily occurring on the rear wheel, I'm not sure whether it's the same or different spokes but after every ride I have one or more spokes where the nipple has almost completely unscrewed from the spoke.

I am 200lbs w/o gear and from reading up on here I don't think my weight should be the problem, should it? Would I be better off with an flow on the rear? Or should that really have nothing to do with spokes loosing tension?

The builder offered to look them over, true and tension them, but I really just want to do whatever it takes to have a set of wheels I can just ride and enjoy :confused:

Thanks! That's what I thought but I'm not a wheel builder so I don't want to call anyone out on what they do for a living. Guess I'll give the builder a second chance and see what happens.
