I have talked with him about jumping too hard. The 36t engagement ring on the DT hub will help prevent trouble from it, but he still needs to exercise some preventative measures. After this wheel, he's on his own!

When he road my steel frames he would twist them so hard that I had him stop riding them until he got a bike of his own. Last year he got the Caad10 and all is well on the frame front...just the wheels are an issue. Blew spokes left and right with the cheap Shimano wheel. 3 spokes in the first week and a half of riding! Now this. I do believe the answer is going to a non-conventional engagement device.

No offense to you or your son, but from your descriptions this is what I picture in my head:



Maybe you should get him Peter Sagan's bike?

I don't know if this is my nature or an unconscious desire to treat my equipment well, but when going from coast to pedalling, I pedal a little lighter until cranking up the output (which still isn't much.) Perhaps developing slightly better habits would help your son?
Agreed. Learning to treat materials with respect is important. Of course, the way you learn is by pushing parts to the breaking point. Then, if you're smart, you figure out that it's not the hub/rims/etc.---it's you.

You mean I have to break things in order to learn how to respect them? Twisted.

I guess that means since I'm not violent I'll never be able to respect you.

Second. With a steel body.

From your description I would say the hub is a cheap Chinese model that has the pawls mounted inboard under the rt side flange. That's the problem.
Cassette or Freewheel Hubs by Jobst Brandt The Joy Tech hubs with the interchangeable freehub bodies ( from shimano to campy or vice versa) are the worst.

So right. And he complains about Shimano freehubs.
