Not complaining about the durability of the Dura Ace 7850 wheels—they’re five years old and have gone very well…
This is why 32 spokes are better than 24.
Hobbled from Breaker Bay to Wellington Central and took the train to Petone, where my trusty steed with more spokes was waiting at the workshop.
The last 15kms were a gentle reminder of the old saying,
"Light, cheap, durable—pick two."
