My commuter bike was in the shop to have a new rear wheel installed. I was breaking a spoke or two on every ride and the LBS suggested a new 36 spoke heavy duty rear wheel. This should do the trick.
However the lack of riding was cause by some heavy rains the made it impossible, mainly because there were no streets to be riden. See for yourself.
