4 spokes in 1 year. Whasss Up?
I bought a Raleigh C500 51 weeks ago. 1st 4 months no problem. Then a spoke broke. 2 weeks later a 2nd spoke broke. The shop replaced with new wheel under warranty with a shimano hub, DT 14 spokes and CR18 rim. Broke a spoke 6 weeks ago, spoke replaced and wheel trued. Tonight hit a manhole which sunk about an inch, 500 yards later...dunk. Oh shoot. Broken spoke. I try to ride carefully. I weigh in at 240. What can I do? (BTW all rear spokes)
