Default Re: Ripped Out a Spoke ?

Hey Wheel my bike was $50. from Target LOL... Just takes maintenance. I already replaced the wheel bearings in the rear wheel, with under 100 miles. I dont believe price has much to do with it, a bicycle is not meant to be motorized. Where my spokes cross on the rear wheel I wire tied them together. It strenghtens them by supporting them by each other, and if one should pop, the ties keep them from going anywhere, such as into the chain. Some people use wire, or ties, or whatever....I would go get the new wheel if they are offering it. I have seen many members with out of true wheels brand new....
