Just wondering what other velocipedes do with regard to rim manufacturer max spoke tensions. In the past I have built with rims which have stated a range on them, but if the manufacturer states the max as 130kgf (a la archetype), is it ok to have the average spoke tension at 130kgf? If the tension variance on the build is say +/- 5%, the highest tension spoke would be 137kgf - would you consider this acceptable? Or would you rather drop the tensions so the average is say 125kgf and the highest tension spoke 130kgf?
In essence does max = max? Or the target spoke tension?
Keen to hear people's views.
