I'm having trouble with broken spokes. Any ideas would be welcome.
I have a Schwinn Sierra 700 Hybred bike and have broken 3 spokes in about 3 months of low stress use.
Howdy and thanks for any helpfull ideas...
Hi, welcome to the forums.
Repeated broken spokes are normally due to a badly built wheel. If you've just been replacing the broken spokes, I'd recommend taking the wheels to a good bikeshop who has someone who can re-true your wheels by hand.
Currently riding an MTB with a split personality - commuting, touring, riding for the sake of riding, on or off road :)
