You can always upgrade at purchase to 36 spoke.....a lot cheaper than doing it later because you can trade back the brand new wheel set for credit against the upgrade wheels.

thanks
my pedal motion is not right because my road bike has only a 16" chain stay. i'm 6' 3" with extra long thighs, causing lower back problems. my doctor recomended a different bike.
another option might be a touring frame. it has a longer chain stay. maybe i can get my seat back far enough.
thanks for your interest. i could put better wheels on a comfort bike.

You know, if you're having back issues, there's always a recumbent.....

They are pretty comfortable too once you get used to the new position
