I popped a spoke on my back wheel yesterday for the fourth time since I owned it (~1300 miles). When I had my last one repaired the dude at the bike shop said it might be time to think about a new wheel. He effectively said all you're doing is wrestling a bent wheel back into shape, which is causing too much strain on the spokes. Is this BS?
Relevant facts: I'm a hefty 230. It's a BD Motobecane USA. Maybe they threw some crap rims/spokes on there? They are stainless steel spokes. Rims: XRP COMP Vuelta, 6061T6 Double Wall aluminum with machined brake track.
Thanks for any replies!
