In 45 years of cycling and 10's of thousands of miles I have only broken maybe 6 spokes. The wheels on my bike now are from 1971. All original spokes. Maybe they make wheels differently now. But spoke breakage is or should be a rare happening.
This. I broke 2 spokes so far. One on a wheel from 1956 and one on a wheel from 1963. Both broke in 2017.
