In Feb i bought myself a Merlin Malt-R road bike, it's fantastic and i love it. I know with cheaper bikes the compromise is usually in the wheelset, however i have had a lot of woes with the Carbotech K30 Wheels it came with.
After about a month a spoke snapped in the front wheel, was not too annoyed after all they're cheapo wheels. £15 for a new spoke and a true up at Infinity Cycles.
4-6 weeks later, snapped spoke on the rear wheel - new spoke and a true up. £10 off a mate who runs a cycle repair business. Getting a bit annoyed now.
Tonight 9 miles into a ride 2 more spokes snapped on my rear wheel. Quite annoyed now.
In defense of the wheels, they have done a lot of miles since Feb (over 2K miles now) and they are a low end model. Would i stand a prayer of Merlin replacing, any thoughts/experiences?
I'm going to give it a shot anyway but just thought I would ask the STW collective mind.
