I have a new Trek 720 Touring bike with about 1000 miles and have broken two spokes on the rear tire in the past two weeks and haven't yet added the weight of panniers. This is a 24 spoke wheel and I'm told Trek doesn't have a 32 spoke wheel for this application. I'm concerned for when I begin my cross-country touring in another month and adding another 30-35 # over that wheel. This Trek model is new this year...anyone else out there have similar problems? I've traveled 1000s of miles without broken spokes until now. Any diagnosis?
NOTE - Trek has issued a recall for this particular wheelset
