Loose Spoke

Noticed when I got back from my ride last night I have a loose spoke and the wheel is slightly untrue.

I did have a go a tightening the spoke but the wheel does still have a very slight 'wobble' when I spin it up. Should the wheels be exactly true or is a little wobble acceptable?

Also, how much (approx) does the usual wheel 'tune up' run to usually?

    Most wheels will have a very slight wobble. It will cost peanuts to true your wheel. I got a new spoke fitted and trued for £6 recently.
