Thank you in advance.
It is not that unusual to have new wheels come out of true after a short time. I have the RS80-C24 wheels and they came out of true after just a few rides. However, I trued them up once and now they've been fine for well over a thousand miles. I wouldn't worry about applying loctite or getting too concerned unless you trued them multiple times and had them come out of true multiple times.
I've ridden the bike twice with these wheels and have had to true both wheels after the first ride, and the rear wheel only after the second ride. I'm shooting for a quick ride this evening after work, so hopefully I will have more info tomorrow.
Really appreciate your feedback.
He was about 90kgs at the time. He's 85kg now.
He chased the true on these for about 6 monthd then gave up.
Corrected and bonded spoks did not sem to cure it.
Sadly the wheels were just too light for his mass...
He moved to more robust wheels.
I'd recommend trueing and seling the DA wheels as there i nothing inherently wrong with them.
Then getting some Pacenti SL23 on Alchemy ORC & ELF hubs 20 / 24 radial Front, 2 cross BOTH sides Rear with CX Rays, from Fairwheel bikes in the US. Approx $950US.. NOT A QUOTE.. estimate only!!!
Drop Jason a line there and explain your intended use and mass (fully kitted).
Or if you want off the shelf, sightly cheaper and similar function look to pick up some of the 2013 HED ardennes. Hubs not as good but very similar otherwise.
If you run tubeless, you may have to retension as well.

But really, 20/16 spokes for a lightweight rim really isn't many ... if you ride poor roads.
mrfish wrote:Likely not enough tension - once tensioned sufficiently these wheels should not go out of true as the spokes will have tension even under pedaling loads. Then there is no need for spoke locking compounds. I would ask an experienced mechanic to take a look.
If they were insufficiently tensioned, but true, then they'd untrue quite easily - then the very process of truing them up will inject uneven spoke tensions which becomes a never-ending problem.
