But again...when are people going to discuss stress relieving?

Even with the Holy Grail of Spokes....if you don't stress relieve....the premature failures are going to continue.

As a follow-up and for the benefit of anyone who might see this thread in the future, with the factory 32 spoke rim with straight gauge spokes I was popping a spoke probably every 3 - 6 months, since putting together the 36 spoke rim with triple butted spokes going on two years ago I haven't broken a spoke.

Thanks to all who gave input on this and my other related posts.

I'd say SAPIM are not any worse, if not better.

What material rim did you end up with? Aluminum?

If your local bike shop doesn't have these wheels in stock, they can order them easily enough from QBP or J&B.

There's probably not a carbon rim made that doesn't cost more (for just one) than my bike did!

Rhyno Lites can't be beat for durability and being reasonably light and inexpensive.
