I'd kitted out my Trek 7.2FX with fenders, rack, panniers etc and had been commuting on it. Not really far, about 9 miles round trip, but there are some pretty rough roads on the way. Went to air up the rear tire on Sunday, found a busted spoke!
Had the spoke repaired and the wheel trued at the bike shop, have no idea how true the wheel was when I bought it. I weigh about 260 right now, am I going to keep breaking spokes? I'm half wondering if I should start saving my pennies for a touring bike to commute on if the little hybrid can't handle both my girth and a few bumps.
