Hello, all. After sporadically lurking the forums for the last year, I've registered to ask questions of my own.
I'm currently planning wheels that I wish to build for my touring bicycle. I've noticed in some threads here people discussing NDS and DS spoke tension balance. At least one person (ligero in this thread) has claimed certain lace patterns and hub dimensions attribute certain percentages of the difference between the two sides' spoke tensions. What I'm wondering: does anyone here know the math that can provide such a figure based on all the known variables involved, or are such claims pure guesswork? I'd like to do calculations of my own, if possible.
