Update on the wheels

I spoke with Giant today about my front wheel & the lack of integrity in its manufacturer.  They asked me to take the wheel to a Giant stockist in Bexley which I did.

The chap there confirmed what the mechanic told me on Sunday.  The rimmed wheels aren't up to the job.  It only had 24 spokes on the wheel & being my weight it doesn't deal with the weight distribution well & this causes the spokes to flex, which in turn loosen the nipples & this is why they come loose.

So another expensive trip to the cycle shop & I have just spent £200 on two new wheels which will be in on Thursday.
