Re: How do I stop breaking spokes?
Well, after mounting a wheel from another bike onto the motorbike, and putting back a few trips that were uneventful, I started taking apart the original wheel to repair and inspect...
looks like the bicycle chain derailled onto the hub from 1st gear and lacerated the 8 spokes that loaded under counter-clockwise tension, as the 3 remaining were all grooved, and the 6 that broke were from that same side and orientation.
Weird mystery solved! Thanks for all the replies! I was consulting and confounded for a few days!
