    Beefy New Rims

    I was popping spokes on my Marin's 32 count factory rim, so I ordered new Sun Rynos and a 36 count hub with 2mm spokes. Hopefully this will last longer than a month between popped spokes!

    Got the same rims on my Cannondale, with 14ga Wheelsmith spokes (I forget what that is in mm). I can leap buildings. They've been on there a couple of years, maybe 3000 miles, and they're still true.
    If you're popping spokes that often, though, unless you go about 350, you ought to have a talk with your wheel guy. I didn't have that much trouble on my road bike when I weighed 270 (down to 230 now).

    I expect 2,000-2,500 miles from my current hand-built set (Matrix 750 with DT spokes and Shimano hub) I got 2,000 out of the last wheel without incident.
