It happened again, I broke another spoke with less then 20 miles from the last one. Same area, rear drive side at the hub. Cruising at about 15mph, on flat easy ground, not even pushing hard(almost the exact same location as I broke the last one). I'm wondering if its time to make the wheel a 'spare' and order those Deep-V's I've been thinking about (at least one for the back).
Right now I'm using what I assume is the stock wheels on my 05' Allez; a 32 spoke Alexrims DA16 700c rear. I'm still tipping the scales at 330lbs. Could I just be too much for the wheel? The front is the same rim in a 28 spoke And it is still the truest wheel I have ever owned, no sign of weakness there at all (yet). I'll be going to the LBS in the morning and am going to have him give every thing a good looking over. I'm afraid he might not want to comment on my weight out of fear of offending me. So for that reason I come here for the brutal truth; and maybe a reason to buy a new toy I have been eyeballing
