Continuos rear wheel grief
Hello all, im currently on tour from Alaska to Argentina and am now leaving Baja, the tour is going great and ive had so much good vibes all long the way.
Only problem is my rear wheel, snapped the first one after 200kms in alska and had it replaced with a sun ryhno which i was told is the best option for a fully loaded tour, It is spoked with 14gauge dt spokes on a solid Lx hub. I kept breaking spokes no matter how much stuff i got rid of it got so bad that i had it rebuilt in Bakerfeild and since then it was fine never coming out of true, i was well pleased however that counts for nothing now that it has split at the eyelts in several plAces one so bad that you could see where it has pulled it completely out.
Sunn has said they will warranty it but why has this happebned twice, im carrying about 40-50lbs on the back and am maybe 70 kilos myself, all the breakages are on the drive side.
Basically im getting into more remote territory and want a wheel to last the distance ill be having it buiklt soon as get to hermosillo and want any advice that can stop the same happening again
Cheers for your help in advanace
