So...the back story.
I had my 2nd spoke on my LeTour break on the last charity ride (Tour De Paris). I had actually thought it had come out of true, but the way it was woven into the other spokes didn't make that readily apparent.
I got the price for a hand-built deep V 40 spoke ($300+), and decided the CR16 40 spoke touring wheel set I found on ebay would be an good purchase. After ordering the wheels, I checked out the sale at the lbs to see what they had. Of course everything was out of my league...but they had some trade in's in the used area that had just come in.
I found this:
1995 (I think) Trek 1220 (RSX components) for $150.00
After fretting about it for awhile (the spousal unit sometimes doesn't approve) It was mine.
Now here's the question.
Do I keep the Trek as it is (concerns about 32 spoke wheels while I'm still hanging around 350#)?:
Here's the current rim:
Or replace the current wheels with the 40 spoke Sun CR16's and (Deore XT rear hub):
Should I transfer components to my 89-ish Letour for the steel frame as opposed to the aluminum of the 1220?
of course I could CL it all and keep the touring wheels for something else....
