I just got back from the LBS where I took my rear wheel in to have them put on a new spoke. That's the 3rd spoke I've broken in the past month and a half. I paid to have the first one replaced, did the 2nd one myself (it was my first time doing that job) but I decided that since the 3rd one broke so quickly that maybe I screwed up the 1st time I did it.
I asked the LBS guy why I was breaking so many spoke and he said that my rims were probably about shot. I ride a Trek 1000 that I just got in Jan. of this year and it probably has >4,000 miles on it so far.
Was the LBS guy trying to feed me some bull to get me to upgrade my wheels or are my wheels really going bad?
