I am asking this here instead of in Mountain Biking because I have been having an epidemic of broken and loose spokes on my mountain bike wheels. It is always on the rear, and has happened on multiple bikes. All of my current wheels are machine built i think. i do have a set of sun ryhnolites on LX hubs that may be hand built i can't remember.
Regardless, i am looking for a strong rear wheel with good spokes/brass nipples and preferably as many spokes as possible. I don't do anything but ride dirt/gravel roads. I don't need light particularly, just strong and durable.
Can someone recommend a good handbuilt wheel?
