I have had to true the back wheel on my OCR3 three times in 3 months leading up to today. Today it turned "egg-shaped" and I felt it vibrating in the rear. I knew it would happen as it is a very generic DA-22 and I am 315 as of today. I called around and was told a 36 spoke Mavic will be about $200-$250 built. I am unemployed and $100 is my budget on this unforseen(well, kinda) expense. I was offered a new r500 Shimano for $80.00 but it is a 24 spoke wheel. The LBS said "24 spoke will be fine for you, we got bigger guys on this wheel with no problems"
Can I get some ideas for a replacement "sturdy" wheel for $100 or less?-Thanks, James
