Bike and I used to weigh about 210 pounds. Lost about 20 pounds since then. That front wheel broke a spoke when I hit it on a tree stump while carrying it. It was a disc wheel, however when I broke a rear 28 spoked wheel spoke, it didn't hit the V brake pads either. Just wrapped it and continued my ride.cplus wrote:32 spoke front?
How much do you weigh? 350pounds??
Proprietary low spoke count wheels usually have larger cross sectional area spokes.
