Bought a new rear wheel today

Broke another spoke under load today so I nursed it to the bike shop and they had a Giant pxc-2 disc rear built and ready at a price that fit my comfort level for this emergency.

125.00
32 holes with inserts
sealed hub
double wall


dt spokes?

unsure about this last part. Can anyone confirm?

So far I like it. If the spokes are indeed dt, I'll probably buy it's sister front.

Look at the spoke head (at the j bend where the spoke goes through the flange), if DT, it will have DT marked on the head. Check out the design here Spoke Head Identification Chart

That's pretty cool ! best I can tell though, it falls into one of the "unknowns".

I did mention it to the shop I bought the bike. they said trek covers it for 3 years. they send it to trek, trek sends me a new wheel.

Based on the fork exchange, I worry the new wheel might not be as good. But then this is an in-house situation as bontrager is right on the wheel, as opposed to the suntour issue.

And I wanted to rebuild the wheel anyway. I wonder if...... I go call lbs now.
