comment Do I need a separate dishing tool for building wheels with park tool TS-2.2 truing stand?
YMMV, but I've checked the results of several wheels I've built on a TS-2 and never needed to correct dishing.

comment Why does my right Achilles hurt when I use my Sidi S Pros
A $300 shoe that doesn't work is not worth it. I'd recommend a Physical Therapist that knows bicycling over a podiatrist but that is in part to knowing some really good PTs and not being that impressed with the docs. Regardless, if you can't get the shoes to work, and they are the source of the pain, sell them or give them away...if you keep them you will continue to wear them.

comment How to avoid turning the spokes while tuning the wheel
If you use penetrating oil, then you must clean the threads of the spoke afterwards (I like a spray degreaser followed by a good wipe) and reapply spoke prep (I will use blue loctite in a pinch...others think this an evil practice).
