Bike: Jamis Coda
Wheels: From Alex Rim DC19 to the "upgraded" Alex Rim R450 (which, from what I've been told, has 4 more spokes).
Okay, I don't get it. I've barely had a decent time riding this year because the tire situation. It happened several times with the older wheel and now (after only about 3 or 4 rides) has happened twice with the new wheel. I don't know if it's the slight over-inflating (very slightly above the 120 PSI it calls for), my weight (250-260), combination of both, or "other." So this is what I want to know:
Why in the world does this keep happening? Is it normal? This never happened to me the first year I bought the bike (which was last year).
And finally, are Alex Rim wheels just not "good?" Would buying another wheel solve this problem?
I actually bought a spoke wrench and tried to fix it myself so that I wouldn't have to go back to my LBS yet -again-, but couldn't figure out which one to turn, which way to turn it, etc. So......I'm stuck!
