I just broke my second spoke in as many weeks. I took my wheel to the LBS to be replace spoke(#1), while I was out of town last week. I picked it up on Saturday, rode a quick 15 miler on Saturday, a 45 miler on Sunday, and blew out the spoke(#2) 15 miles into my ride on Monday. spokes (#1 & #2) appear to be exactly opposite it each other. Is this normal?
Is $5 for the spoke and $20 for a true a reasonable amount? $50 for a couple of spokes sounds high to me, do I have better options? The shop mechanic told me, they are just going to be keep failing, but didn't give me any options. The rim is as true as can be and the hub is still in great shape...Would it be worthwhile just rebuilding it? or go for a new wheel? Am too fat at 175lb?
Wheel: DT Swiss R1700 (rear) ~ 2000miles
