Now I'm a massive bloke (weight 19 stone) and I've been commuting with two nearly-full panniers across roads which have a lot of lumps and bumps so I'm not expecting miracles, just a bit of advice.
- Is it even worth bothering to get the wheel trued or will the same thing happen again within another seven outings?
- Should I just buy a new rear wheel and forget the stock ones that came with the bike (Alex ACE-19 rims, not sure about the rest)?
- If so, what wheels should I get? I don't care about weight or speed, I just want something that will hold a fat bloke with two heavy panniers across bumpy tarmac for more than a week without going out of true.
I'm going on a bike maintenance course in a couple of weeks so I expect I'll probably learn to true wheels myself but still... I don't want to do it EVERY Friday evening when I get home from work.
