Hello fellow clydes, I am 250 lbs. and I have a Mongoose Pro Mountain bike. I switched the tires for semi-slicks. So far every wheel I have bought has broken spokes and untrue issues. I was wondering what is a wheel set or back wheel for a mtn. bike/hybrid that is strong and wont wobble and break spokes but also wont be heavy?
I have a nearby LBS that ordered me some sort of Sun wheel I think its the Sun CR18 and he is building the wheel. Plus my bike uses a freewheel system, but he says a Cassette system will be stronger for my weight? So I have to buy a cassette too, a shimano one/ 7 speed.
Does everyone think I am doing the right thing? I don't want to spend a fortune on this bike either, I just want to have fun and lose weight. I love riding thou.
