I have ridden only Joe Young wheels since discovering them about 8 years ago. Previous to using Joe’s wheels, I broke as many as 4 or 5 spokes each summer. As a recumbent bike rider, Joe was quick to ask about weight distribution, my weight, and riding style. I am happy to report that I have had no broken spokes or issues with my wheels. In the last 8 years, I have broken one spoke, when I used a wheel that was not one of Joe’s on a borrowed bike.
