Breaking spokes on my trek 1000 is becoming a trend. The stock 32 count Alexrims AT450 rims aren't up to my 240 lbs. I am thinking about shopping for a new wheel set rather than having all the spokes replaced with a bigger gauge. The Rocky Mountain Cyclrey Mavic A119 rims with Shimano XT M760 hub set and 36 DT 2.0 straight guage spokes at $159.00 for the set have my eye right now but I have just started shopping so any opinions are welcome.
Questions. I am mechanical and not affraid of changing out the cassette, but not sure of special tools needed or what else I will run into if I go this route.
