So my son and I woke up bright and early this morning and went for a nice little 30 mile ride. At mile 18 I heard a BANG and felt the rear wheel start to get mushy. Stopped to check and sure enough broke a spoke. Had to call the wife to come and rescue us.
I've had issues with spokes getting loose on the rear wheel the last few weeks and my LBS worked on it each time. Keep in mind the bike , a Specialized Sequoia, was bought new last month. My last bike, a Specialized Crosstrail, had an issue of breaking rear spokes too. I took the bike back today. The owner says he will contact Specialized to see what other wheel options are available. He says we might even have to go the custom route and that there could be a price difference in the exchange of wheels.
Right now biking isn't fun anymore. If this is the way it'll be then why bother? All I want to do is go out and ride, and ride with my son too.
