comment What causes a wheel to suddenly go out of true?
So I was finally able to do a more thorough inspection last night, and this answer was very thorough and helpful. Fortunately, it looks like this is actually a case of gradual loosening. The suddenness seems to have been caused by the wheel wiggling a mm or so in the rear dropout. The quick-release was tight, so I cleaned out the dropout in case dirt was causing the wiggling, and then I did some minor truing and reseated the wheel. Now it's working great. This answer was very helpful for knowing what passible major problems to look out for.

I think it's great to link to articles off-site, but it would be really helpful to include a short summary as well.

This is a very good answer. By the way, do you have any additional insights about how to find the tone for a given kg/f?
