Testimonial: "ive looked on the internet for days and found nothing. my next question is... CAN I DRILL THE HOLES ON THE RIM AND HUB TO THE CORRECT SIZE AND THEN BUY HEAVY DUTY SPOKES AND REPLACE THE ORIGINALS WITH THE HEAVY DUTY SPOKE"
Because the Meridian takes special hubs due to it being a trike your only option is to have a shop obtain the largest diameter spokes that will fit your hubs, either drill out your rims or obtain rims to fit larger spokes, and then build up the wheels. It will be expensive.
If you bike is older and has just started to break spokes, rebuilding with the same gauge will probably be sufficient.

Testimonial: "DRILLING THE HOLES IN THE RIM AND HUB IS NO PROBLEM AT ALL, finding and getting the right spokes would be the hardest part for me. Ive respoked a few rims and can get them farely close to being straight.If you can give me the correct lenght and where i can get them i would do the whole job myself"
