I think I will have all of the spokes on my wheel replaced. If another breaks I will either have a wheel built or just go to the gym and lose weight before I ride again.
I do really like my bike.

When the first one broke last year I only had that one replaced. I donít have many miles on it since so I agree I should have had them all replaced.
