Spoke broke ALREADY?!
Seriously?! WTF!? The wheel set on my MTB/Commuter has already blown a rear spoke..! ARGGGHH!!!
The MTB is currently ruining/running X317 rims on XT high flange hubs. This SUCKS! I do my best to post over bumps and such but some of the concrete 'lips' on the MUP I ride sometimes are pretty brutal. Like 11/2" high! I'm guessing thats where the problem started...I really need to find a solution for this. If things don't mellow out, I'm switching to stainless spokes. I'm using the alloy spokes that came with the unit...yet another source of issues I'm sure. At least next week I'll be running a new Surly suspension corrected fork and maybe sport for an even longer than 130 front stem with mary/gull/dirt drops (undecided as of yet). What a Franken Bike! I'll make sure to have a friend take pics when I get some of these issues taken care of...
Now I'm paranoid about the new rear wheel on my single speed. That bike is running an ENO hub on a Sun M13 II rim, stainless spokes. Its a touring, eyeleted rim. It's pretty narrow but handbuilt and BEAUTIFUL! (Fingers crossed I don't blow out the single commuting to work!)
I feel better. Thanks for letting me whine a bit....
