Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Wow that's fantastic. Only 1 spoke popped, you had much better wheels starting out than I did, that's for sure.

Congrats! At least you didn't have to add the "wrecked a nice Cannondale on a demo ride" to that list like I would

I'm not sure. These were the stock Bontrager Select wheels that came with the Trek. What was your Trek equipped with?

Plus all of my miles are road miles, you may be out stump-jumpin' or something.
