    Hi From MN

    Howdy,
    I'm 63 and just getting back into old fart biking. My long distance so far is 64 miles in a weekend.
    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 :)
