repeatedly busting spokes


← Back to Forums


so, in the last 15 days, i’ve popped 3 spokes on my rear wheel, cog side. this is getting to be a pain in the behind.

now, i’ve gone about 350 miles in the past week, but three spokes just seems like a bit much. is this a symptom of a bigger issue? should i consider getting a new wheel, or maybe just rebuilding the current one? might there be something wrong with the wheel or hub or something else that’s causing the spokes to bust? the first two were right near the reflector, and shop guys commented on that fact both times, but the most recent one was on the (radially) opposite side.

two is a coincidence. three is a pattern. what options have i got and what should i look for?
