    Yes I knew, just wonder is it so fragile?

    Forged hubs are the strongest. Machined hubs are less strong than forged.

    The fewer spokes a wheel has, the tighter they must be; the tighter the spokes, the more stress on the hub.

    Given equal hub strength and equal spoke tension, radially laced spokes are the most likely to tear out.

    Thus the more non-radially laced spokes exist, the less stress exists on the hub.

    similar for me, it's much easier for me to grip the larger oval rims due to weakness from peripheral nerve damage.

    Thanks for your information.

    I've had Fusion 16 wheels for almost 3 years now- zero issues, other than tuning the spokes once a year when I change tires (shox solids). I have a spoke tension meter to make sure they are perfect.

    hmmmmm, spoke tension meter, more info please. always wanted to learn how to tune my own spokes

    Apparently, there are fiber-spoke for bicycle. It should fit sun fusion, but im not sure whether it's synthetic fiber/kevlar, but if my spoke ever break, i think im gonna try a set.
    walking is OVER-RATED!!!
