Well, its been about 200 miles on my cxp 33 wheels. So today I started up an overpass and every time I put any real force on the pedal I could feel and hear the rear brake rubbing on the wheel. I have aprox. 1/8 of an inch of play on both sides of the brake. I stopped at a local bike shop and explained my plight, he retensioned my spokes for me, Bringing them back up to spec. This is the 4 th time this season I have had this problem. I used DTdouble butted spokes, linsead oil for thread locker. they did last about twice as long this time but this is getting stupid.
o.k. I have one builder that I spoke to say that I should be using straight gage spokes because my weight (240 lbs.) is streching the lighter gage spokes. Causing the spokes on the bottom to loosen.
At this point I am out of ideas. Does this make any sense to anyone? could it be plausable that this is the cure for my wheel woes?
Any opinions are welcome.
