    I found two broken spokes on the rear wheel of my RK this weekend, has anybody ever installed new spokes?

    Be sure to go through front wheel spokes also....

    That is serious business. Not saying you can't do it but I sleep well at night knowing a "pro" set my wire rims right. Money well spent in my opinion.

    Thanks for the info., looks like I've got another winter project. Or maybe I should ask Santa Claus for those custom wheels I've been eyeballing.

    That was one of the reasons I decided to replace the front laced with a cast wheel. Also with the cast was able to go tubeless.
