Not sure if this is the right place to ask...
I bought new bike about 10 months ago. The past few weeks I've had no end of trouble with the rear wheel (Mavic Aksium) in regards to spokes.
About 4-5 spokes on the non-drive side consistently come loose. I tighten them, then after riding for about 15 meters I hear the "twang" as they work themselves loose. One of them snapped right off at the nipple, looks a bit brittle where the break was.
- Is this normal for a wheel to wear out so fast? I've done about 2500km on it.
- I'm missing 1 spoke, and loose on about 4 now. Is the wheel ready for the bin, or is it worth fixing?
- Is this something that is normally covered in bike manufacturer warranties, or is it a case of "sorry mate, its just general wear"
