Big Guy/Broken Spokes(1 post)

Hi,

I am a big guy (240 lbs) and have a bike with Mavic CXP-21 wheels (with DT spokes if that makes a difference). I am breaking a spoke on every longer ride. Besides losing weight (in which cycling should be helping) what can I do to stop breaking so many spokes? Should I have different wheels? If so, what wheels would people recommend for a man of my size?

Thanks,

--Wayne
