So I left Ruby to have a new spoke put on, and the LBS just called. They've replaced the spoke, but sort of had to "build one" because the replacement spoke wasn't available. Not really sure what that means, but whatever.
Then he started telling me there was a possibility of a "chain reaction" in terms of that rear wheel, once a single spoke breaks, and that I should be prepared for the possibility of further problems.
Is this true?
THEN he said he'd like to talk about some new wheel options when I come in. He said new wheels would make a TREMENDOUS difference on the bike, take off a lot of weight, give much better performance, yada yada yada.
So here's my question: Is he right, or is he looking to sell new wheels? And what am I really looking at in terms of wheel upgrades -- a couple of hundred dollars? Several hundred? And is it worth it? I realize you can't speak for the LBS, I'm just looking for general comments.
Everything else about the bike is fine, he said, including chain, etc. Bike has about 2,500 miles on it.
