I bought my Trek 7100 hybrid back in May and so far I have done around 850 miles this season. Unfortunately, 2 out of my last 3 rides have resulted in broken spokes on my rear rim.
My weight has stayed the same at 245 (need to work on that diet!). Am I just running into bad luck or is there a reason these spokes are breaking now?
I usually drive to the trails in my car but the last few trips I have taken the road to the trail with my bike. Our roads aren't the best here and I'm avoiding potholes and re-paved sections like crazy. The bike paths are pretty smooth. Could the bumpy road trip be the reason my spokes are breaking?
Today, the spoke broke on the bike path up one of the larger grades. I was not on the road when it happened.
