Default Re: spokes on wheel

I haz "cheesy walmart single-wall marshmallow-alloy rims" myself, and between the abuse of the roads round here, the crazy bastid riding the bike, and prolly the stock sprocket mount - my rear rim in partic is never true.

*shrug* I'm sure they're good 'nuff so to speak, but they do not fill me with confidence lol I do know (unfortunately) they like to taco way too easily, while no rim is invulnerable - I think the rims I have on my bike are it's weakest link.

Potholes wait in ambush, jump out right in front of you when yer flanked by a cager and a gravel drop-off, I swear! I seen 'em!

sneaky o.o
