I just broke a spoke on a new Mavic Open Pro wheel that I ordered custom built from Colorado Cyclist just last year. I guess I screwed up on ordering the spokes because now that I look at them, I see they are on the skinny side.
Instead of having the one spoke replaced, I figured I would just have the whole wheel replaced.
I think the shop is recommending 2.0mm spokes. Are these the beefiest that can go on this wheel?
I asked about the Alpine III which I understand is a pretty strong spoke but I think they said, those would not work. Any idea why?
They also recommend triple cross over double cross. Will this make the wheel a bit stronger?
I probably should have gone with 36 hole over 32 too but I just use the bike for credit card touring so I am not carrying a whole lot of weight anyway.
