I have a GT Backwoods mountain bike that I only ride on the road for exercise, maybe 1000 miles a year. Every year, sometimes twice a year, I'll end up breaking spokes.
The dealer wants to sell me $400.00 rims.
Is this just poor maintenance on my part? In the past, the wheels on my motocross bikes (motorcycle) would loosen initially, I'd tighten them and they would eventually settle in.
Dumb question, I'm sure, but thought I'd ask .
Thanks. P.S I weigh 215#, 6'.
