I'm having problems with broken spokes. I'm 63 and just getting going with biking. I have a Schwinn Sierra 700 and have broken three spokes in about two months of light duty riding.
I'm a big guy, 6-2 and 220 Lbs. All three broken spokes have been on the back wheel.
I'm quite mechanical and would like to fix the problem myself. I have downloaded several wheel building/spoke fixing things. Is there a brand or type of spoke that would be best for someone my size?
The rims are ALEX RIMS and have 32 spokes. Should that rim if spoked correctly work ok for me? I'm just a recreational bike rider and don't want the have an ongoing problem with spokes.
Thanks for any help/ideas.
