    I ended up speaking too soon about my bike. Thursday I was going for a quick ride before heading out for the weekend driving PSV for my friends and broke a neighboring pair of spokes on the drive side in the back. I dropped the bike off on our way out of town and I picked it back up today after work. he replaced the spokes and retrued and retentioned the wheel. He hadn't initially tried to run it through warranty but after asking about it, he's going to try and call me with the details later.

    Sorry to hear about that. As of today's ride, I'm 110 miles into the new wheel and things are going ok.

    How many miles did you have on your new wheel?

    The real problem with all this is that in the time that they spent telling you it didnt need to be tensioned, and "replacing" spokes, the wheels could have been brought up to a proper and even tension and dialed in for true and radial.

    I have watched a real pro and it would not have taken her 10 minutes to do both wheels.
    There's indecision when you aint got nothin left
