besides being fat, what am I doing wrong?
6'4", 265 lbs, avid road and Mnt biker........i keep breaking spokes. I bike HARD on the trails, I have a Al Giant XTC with great equipment, 975 XTR front wheel, Mavic cross ride rear hub with a Crossland rim......I keep breaking spokes on the rear, at least one a week. I've backed off the tension, Ive added tension, I've backed off air pressure, I've added......I HATE my weight, and I'm working on it....I hate blade spokes they seem to snap right where the blade goes back round, and I haven't found round straight pull spokes for a crossride hub......what's a big guy to do
