comment Why is my freewheel slipping?
Hub wasn't slipping consistently and wasn't acting up in the shop when I brought it in. They said servicing would be more expensive than replacing as I understand this hub was rather budget. They typically try the cheapest route whenever possible even when it's a little less convenient so I don't think they were too lazy to do the work.

comment Why is my freewheel slipping?
Nope, needs to be loaded up with resistance from the road. Even then it's very intermittent. Mainly occurs during mash from a standstill. Maybe one bang/clunk every 20-30 starts from a stop. Only occurs after a coast/backspin. Bike spins fine at a cadence >60 rpm.

comment Why is my freewheel slipping?
Bike gets relatively low miles as my commute is about 1 mi. each direction but the abuse of the weather is significant. I have the opportunity to bring it inside for periodic repairs, but moving it in/outside daily isn't a real option. Many times the bike won't dry out for weeks on end. The bike has a freehub not a freewheel, thanks for highlighting this article. It's a single speed so a single cog rather than a cassette. Seat tube usually has stagnant water so the frame/bb connection is usally suspect but I just replaced the BB within the last 6 months so I don't think it's failing.

Great answer, and alignment advice.

Maybe I'm missing something but I think if you have a misaligned stand then flipping the wheel will only show your stand is out of alignment, not that your wheel is dished correctly/incorrectly.

I too have built wheels using the TS-2 and like you haven't needed to adjust dish when checked against my dishing tool. Bottom line is a dishing tool costs more or less the same as an alignment tool with a higher degree of accuracy per the manufacturers specs.

From the link you provided: The 1554-1 will help align the TS-2 stand, but for accurate work with the TS-2, working with a dishing tool such as the WAG-4 or WAG-5 is recommended.

comment How to avoid turning the spokes while tuning the wheel
I saw somewhere adding little bits of tape to the spokes to act as flags. By using the above technique and flags as a visual aid you can make sure you are ending each adjustment with non-twisted spokes.

comment What is causing noise/vibration high power input on right hand (drive side) crank?
LBS took out the BB re-greased and re-tightened. The issue is gone.
