I have a problem with a folding ebike,20"wheels 36 hole.I am putting this thread here as I weigh 275 lbs.My bike has 100km on it and I have broken
6 spokes, 13 gauge, mild steel.
I am having the wheel rebuilt with a double walled rim and I cant find any 12 gauge spokes to replace the 13's.
The problem is the holes in the hub are too large,3.2mm.
I have been offered an option of using 13-14 butted stainless spokes.Would this be a viable option using spoke head washers.The spokes are only 110 mm in length.
By the way I have lost 35lbs already,the things we do for our bikes!!!!!!!
