Would you just discard low end rear wheel that has had several broken spokes and just broke two more, or would you get a handful of spokes set to twisting and tightening? ie, would you consider cheap wheels to be disposable consumables? I'm inclined to discard because I doubt I'll ever get it really true, and the time involved if I did might be more than the wheel is worth, but if that's the best option ...
Is something like this http://www.amazon.com/WHEEL-MASTER-W...ef=pd_sbs_sg_3 feasible or is a better quality advisable? Is there a way to tell from this add or the pictures what the hub width is? I need 130mm.
Would it be a horrible mistake to replace a wheel and 7-speed freewheel with one with 8-speed cassette without replacing the shifter? Would it lose or skip one gear or would all the gears be off by n/7?
