I am 6'3", 240 lbs and have a Trek Navigator 300 that I ride 200+miles per week. Last January, I tacoe'd the stock, 36 spoke rear wheel. I had been riding on it for about 7 months. Because I didn't want to wait for an order, I took what they had on hand, a 32 spoke wheel. Everything was fine until July 31, when I broke six spokes. Then, a few days later, another one went. Yesterday, I took out two more. Today, less than 1 mile into my daily ride, another one went. Now, the wheels on the Trek are not the greatest, but should I be breaking so many spokes? After the six went, I had the wheel trued. Then, yesterday, I had it trued again, just in case. It wasn't far off, so there was no charge Next year I am going to buy a road bike and am searching for advise on wheelsets for people my size. I have posted this on other cycling forums and have gotten lots of advice, but don't want to leave any stone unturned. The bike that is now at the top of my list is the Cannondale R1000, which comes with Mavic Ksyrium Elites. I have been told these should be "fine," but also told that Bontrager Aero Lites, and a few others would also work for me. Do any large riders have experence with the Elites? How long have you ridden them and what type of problems, if any, have you experienced?
