    I'm looking for a wheel that is reliable and strong. I've changed about 2 rims already and its anoying.

    Anyone know of good rims?

    can you provide photos of the damaged rims ?, may be able to determine the cause. Riding conditions travelled etc.

    good idea there from Bolt's ---- maybe taking a look will help determine casue ??

    wheelmaster here on site makes some heavy duty wheels
    your local bike shop (should) have something maybe 12 gauge spokes

    did you hit something ???
    if you don't mind me asking - weight of you and MB ???

    I'm having slight wobble because the spokes get loose.

    The spokes get damage because of the sprocket.

    So 12gauge spokes would be better?

    thanks guys for your help!
  5. I have a Wheelman wheel on the back of Cronus after changing FOUR wheels. So far it's still straight as an arrow. These spokes are motorcycle grade,pretty incredible.
    It's pricey but you asked for the best.
    In my opinion these wheels to a MB is like a high end wheel to a roadie bike.
    And those prices are absolutely ridiculous.
  6. How many spokes on that rim? I bet it's a 32.
    Go with a 36 spoke.
    Your sprocket is a 9 hole I would guess pretty universal.
    A 36 spoke wheel is divisible by 9.
    That means it would mount up with EQUAL stress on the spokes.
    And your spokes won't loosen because none of the bolts get in the way of your spokes.
    Go count your spokes.
