youll defenitly need to tighten them more , untill there is no curves in the spokes ,i use to over twist them manually to make a sharp bend so the rest of the spoke is nice and straight . or just ride,tight,ride, tight etc untill is alright

thanks for your advise . I thought something might not be perfect since I am doing this for the first time, but can you be a bit more specific with your quote:

" until there is no curves in the spokes ,i use to over twist them manually to make a sharp bend so the rest of the spoke is nice and straigh"

Do you have an example of this instruction ??

what i ment is you can make the twist tighter (a sharp bend) that way the spoke is nice and straight before and after the bend so it hold tension better
if you have a curve in the spoke apart from where it is crossing , its a spot that will eventually straighten , and you will have to re-tight it
