So as of lately my wheels keep coming out of true after a few miles or start popping spokes on my Giant Sedona. Fortunately for me the LBS that sold me my bike has a year of parts and labor free. Unfortunately, I live a hour drive from them and I honestly am growing tired of taking the bike in after every 100 miles. The guys at the shop are really kind to me about this issue and don't seemed to be upset but at the same time I feel like I'm abusing this perk.
This last repair one of the mechanics recommended custom wheels. He says I can have a custom wheel built with tandem axles, triple walls, 14 gauge heavy duty spokes, 36/38 count spokes for around 90.00. I don't know the first thing about wheels, I have no idea if this is a good deal or if this will fix the problem.
What are your thoughts or suggestions? It's not that I don't trust my local bike shop, I just want to make sure it's worth it. Otherwise I will just invest in a truing stand and the tools and learn to fix the problem myself till the weight comes off and it's no longer a problem.
