Hi everyone, sorry to bring up an old topic BUT...
I'm destroying every wheelset I throw on my bike.. I keep breaking spokes on my rear wheel no matter how I try to ride. I used to be a 320 pound lineman, and although I'm now at 215 (over the past year!) I think I'm still pedaling and have the leg strength of a college lineman. That being said, I have the opportunity now to upgrade my stock alexrims to a better set.. without compromising too much in the performance category, I would like to find a solid wheelset that I don't have to worry about.
I was looking at the mavic askium, and the vuelta corsa hd... from what I've read they appear to be a decent choice.
I also am considering building the wheel up if its worth it. I know having a wheelset retensioned makes all the difference, I just would like to find a wheelset that I don't have to baby, but still am able to ride as hard as I do. Any help would be great. Thank you!
