I broke two spokes on my rear wheel and LBS said it won't be trued without a hop in it. Not sure exactly what that means but i think i means i have to buy a new wheel. Any advice would help. I have done some research and most people say to go with 32 spokes or more and double walled alluminium rims. I would like to get a complete wheel if i can and not have one built. I currently have a Giant Yukon Mountain bike with 26 x 1.5 rims with 8 speed cassette. I have the cassette rims not the hub with thread. Please help! And i am not looking for a light racing wheel just a good wheel for my weight.
