Having been out of cycling for a few years and only just getting back into it my encyclopedic knowledge of all things shiny and mountain bikey are our the window.
I need new wheels, we specifically a new back wheel. My local bike shop has replaced spkes 4 times this year (Shimano 475 hub with a Mavic 117 rim) but almost every time I go out and hit any trail less smooth than perhaps a flat road the inevitable ping happens and there's a broken spoke flapping about.
So my options at the moment are:
The FSA XC-105 wheelset, a set of Shimano 475 laced to Sunn Mammoth rims or I just buy a Deore hub laced to something like a Mavic 321 or 521.
Money isn't exactly in abundance at the moment so i'm trying to keep the costs down.
Also being a Clyde (6 foot tal and 322 pounds) it needs to be strong. I'm in the UK so it's uk shops only for me, but I'm really looking for advice on parts rather than where to buy.........any help is much appreciated.
