Actually, repair could cause unreplicated data to be streamed and new
sstables to be created. New sstables could cause pending compactions
and increase the potential number of sstables a row could be spread
across. Therefore you might need more disk seeks to read a row and
have slower read response time. If the read response time is critical,
it's a good idea to wait for pending compactions to settle before
repairing other neighbouring ranges that overlap replicas.
