    Thanx to all the guys that contributed especially Willie. Well, I took the wheel back to the shop where I purchased it and they sent the rim to ATRA Corporation the suppliers of TREK bike in RSA. They inspected the bike and lo and behold found that the cause of the breaking spokes was the bike shop lacing them the wrong way around!!!! :mad: :mad: The bend was not in the chamfered part of the hub but in the "square" portion of the hub. This caused the spokes to break prematurely. ATRA had the wheel respoked with DT double butted spokes free of charge!!!!!!!! What service!!!!! ;D ;D Many thanx to Ryan at ATRA. ;D ;D ;D ;D
