I was lacing the new supercomps I got (finally!) to the xtr hubs and mavic 717 I have on my hardtail.
It´s a disc setup, The spokes are 3 crossed and I use brass nipples.32 spokes each wheel.
Being such rather thin looking spokes I thought was not a bad idea to check tension with the wheelsmith tensiometer my LBS has let me. The problem is that I have no idea within which tension range should I expect the readings go. So far, I´ve been only checking that tensions are more or less even relative to each other, but what´s the "nice spot" for the tension "absolut" value? Left and right sides shoud give different readings too, don´t they?

thanks
