This morning I broke three spokes on the way into work. I picked up this wheelset new from my LBS last month. So, far I've broken four spokes on the rear wheel in only 400 miles -- all non-drive side. This is a 32 spoke, straight guage, Shimano 105, Mavic MA3 wheelset. Strange thing about these spoke when they break, there is just a little ping.
This is the second wheelset I've had problems with. Last year I purchased a new wheelset. I broke three spokes within the first 1000 miles. Things were pretty good until the rear rim cracked last month at 4000 miles.
I'm getting very tired of this spoke breakage. Until this last year I had never broken a spoke. Now, I break more spoke than I get flats.
Is this just a poor wheelset, or am I just brutal on wheels?
How often to other cyclists break spokes?
