you're always supposed to check the spokes of a new wheel after you ride it, gotta tighten all the nipples that come a little loose.

easy way to check the spokes is to tap each individual one with the metal part of a screw driver. The tight ones will have a nice "ping" to it, a loose one will give a flat sound. You'll hear it.
