This is the first time I've seen this.
Has this happened to anyone else?
I've been breaking a spoke a month with my BionX pl350 rear wheel since March. Always on the non-drive side. My bike comes in well under 50lbs and I'm around 150lbs. I ride it very hard during my commute...jump off curbs but not up them(bike is too heavy to do that), corner aggresively..accelerate hard. I expect the wheel to handle what a decent MTB wheel would handle. This has not been the case. The wheel was rebuilt with Saipam spokes this spring which was supposed to be an improvement.
I've had a Bionx for years with no broken spokes. I don't ride very aggressively. I'm not so much worried about the wheels as the battery mount and the circuit boards.
"we must be the change we wish to see in the world"
I have had this issue many times. Spokes broke regularly on my PL350 700c wheel and I've had the wheel rebuilt 3 times with new spokes. To resolve this issue, I purchased spokes from ebikes.ca (200mm custom cut). This appears to have resolved the issue as I've yet to replace a spoke this year (approx. 1800kms). The Bionx black spokes are poor quality and brittle! Hope this helps.
