I'm just shy of 16st and had a few problems with rear wheel issues recently. Broken spokes and worn hub bearing cones have kept me off the road for the last 2 weeks :(

So, local club colleague put me onto a wheel builder who lives near and went and had a chat this morning. I'm now a lot more educated on all things wheel related, such as double butted spokes etc :)

Have gone for a Mavic Open Pro rim with a Hope mono Pro 3 hub (36h) and laced with Sapin double butted spokes, 3 cross pattern.

Hopefully no more rear wheel issues for me :wink:
