New wheels
#1
The wheels on my Defy 1 are Giant P-SL1 s which I have had a non drive side spoke break on the rear wheel today just before I was due to go down Toys Hill which I did get home on but the rim is now well out of line. I have now read this is happening a lot to these rear wheels and even if you have another spoke fitted and the wheel trued they go again. Has any one got any ideas on a set of wheel for all round use.

Budget? Sounds silly but how much are you happy to spend.
For me A great choice is the hope factory wheels, good prices work great and spares are easier to get than any other brand. Maybe go with the Stan rims, Id not go crest as they couldn't put up with my vast weight of 10 stone without going all crinkly on the first few rides. Flows seem much more built proof.
Other options are some of the superstars components wheels. Or if you're happy to pay more mavic win for me. st or sx best wheels ever for going tubeless. But they do suck on the price tag.
I'd never go for fulcrum wheels again even though there tip top when working ,getting spares from the Italian brand is as much fun as having your teeth pulled.

Hopes and flows seem very popular. I have Hopes with 355s and Crests which have done well for me but I'm fairly light and don't ride that hard

Big Grin dooooh! My bad. Probably best not to go with my suggestion then :B although thinking with the state of the roads at the moment it might be the way to go, their a mud and pot hole paradise.
