I'm a newb to this bike thing. About two months ago I picked up the Giant Bowery (I ride single speed.) Seen here http://www.bicyclefun.com/Giant/Web%...wery-Black.jpg
It came with Alexrims DA22 700c 32 hole rims and I broke a spoke on the rear wheel last week just riding normally. Granted it happened a day after a 15-20 mile ride which I know i got a little gnarly on. $20 later It was fixed and then yesterday it happened again on the rear tire.
I am big! Coming in at 6'4 and hovering that 300lb range. I am loving the bike and riding a lot, works great as a commuter bike and gets a lot of road time and I'm getting myself into shape simultaneously.
My big question is what is a good rear wheel for a guy my size on a single speed? I've been looking at the aerospokes pretty much because I hear they are strong, heavier (help with my size?) and don't need to be trued often.
(Should I look at buying a new wheel or fix this one again and teach myself more about wheel upkeep?)
might as well know out another question if you know......
is the Selle An Atomica Clydesdale model a proper seat for a guy my size everybody at my LBS's has been pointing me towards those (they also said these rims would hold me)?
I hope you guys can help me out and sincerly apologize for the newb questions and length of my post.
