    I broke a spoke on my bike today. That is two in three weeks. This is very disappointing.

    It's a figure of speech.

    Well, quite impressive that a 10 year old knows what a figure of speech is.

    the last time a spoke got broken on my bike was when my girlfriend thought it'd be funny to jam a stick in there while i was riding. i'm guessing a similar thing happened to you.

    Was their lots of glass on the road?

    I would have chucked the tires away and got new ones.

    I guess your browser doesn't have the sarcasm plug-in

    That would be pretty funny, but it is just a cheap wheel that is a bit old.

    Not really. Was cycling on a canal path a lot, so it wasn't strictly ideal road bike material in places. The annoying one was when i came over the brow of a hill and just heard it go pop for absolutely no reason and then had to cycle the 8 miles home with a flat back tyre.
    Ended up stealing the wheels of my mum's road bike and putting them on in the end, and there's been no problem at all with them.
