It seems there is a rash of broken spoke threads, or stronger wheels, or what have you in regards to stronger wheels. What weights are people seeing issues at? I have never, well in my adult years, broken a spoke. I ride on a 82 Schwinn with some cheapy Wienmann rims I got off CL and I have an older Trek 800 with a stock rim and a new one. I ride the Trek hard but have never broken a spoke, stripped the freewheel off the rim, but never busted a spoke. The Schwinn is just my road "racer" that I ride just on trails or the street for long distance rides (or sprints).
I currently weigh 240 (down 15 lbs since March!) and losing weight, but should I be worried? They are a 27" aluminum replacement rim for the old bike (so 27" x 1 3/8" tire I think?) and a 26" x 1" aluminum rim on the MTB (with 2" tires).
Or do I have nothing to worry about and just need to shut up and ride
