so i ride 4 pegs and grind on the left and have rhd. i use the right side as well but 90% of the time i grind op on the left cause ive just fond it more comfortable, but everytime i look at my back wheel i seem to break more spokes on the drive side and idk why :/ any ideas?

OH and they never break from the nipple, they always break right near the flange hole

if you arent grinding them down and theyre breaking from impact, then replace them all

I put my spoke in her while I twisted her nipple.

Saw someone else do this but you could lace your spokes heads in, they did it for the front dont know if it will work for the back.

Could it be an issue with the way the wheel is laced? The only thing I can think of that would cause them to break while you're not riding is uneven tension because of the way they are laced.

I used to break the cheap stainless steel spokes constantly, so I invested in the Odyssey Butted spokes and I rarely break any. They're strong as fuck.

I ride 4 pegs with four guards and the odyssey chainwheel with the guard... spokes are going to break, deal with it
