Are we talking broken spokes? Or nipples? I've broken a wheel when a piece of rebar got in there. It pulled spokes out of the hub flange and pulled nipples through the rim. But never broke a spoke. Stainless steel spokes right? Not black ones of course, 'cause they are worse than shimano hubs - just don't go there. Or alloy spokes, like mavic.

Other than that, a set of wheels lasts longer than the standards in the bicycle industry. I had a set of wheels all through the 10x135. through the 80's and part of the 90's. I got new wheels when I needed to have disk hubs. I got the next set when 10x142 was here and a new set 2 years ago when I went to 12x148 on 29 rims.

I are and always have been 150-160 pounds wet. Maybe up to 170 in winter.

now i'm sore and tire after digging for 7 hours, however the trails got some much deserved nip and tuck!

I was too tired yesterday to take pictures so I will have to go back today to take some. Happy Father's day to all the dads

Yeah I fluctuate between 220 and 230 usually.

Black spokes lever. They're breaking part way through the threads. No rebar.

Swapping to the spare rear wheel now. It's going to the shop this afternoon to be rebuilt. I have neither the skill nor the time to build a wheel.

JRE fans, the naval ravikant episode is top ten on my list of best podcasts. I anticipate that this episode is going to slingshot naval ravikant into a whole lot of people's conscience like how Jordan Peterson did when he went on JRE, and hopefully Naval will fly with the opportunity.

A rad dad day was had!

Bikes with a buddy, poke at ono poke shop, a relaxing walk and sit on the beach at low tide, grilled chicken and beer to finish it all up.

Old Crusty’s make wise father figures. We are all knowing...
