hello, for those of you who dont know and for those of you who do know its a good reminder. ALWAYS CHECK YOUR SPOKES!!! This morning we were packing for a camping trip and my dad rolled my bike out of the shed so he could get at the camping gear. When the bike was out he noticed that 1 spoke hade fallen off the rim and was hanging by the hub. I had just ridden my bike yesterday and hadn't checked my spokes. I was lucky the spoke didnt get caught up in the chain or anything. So always check your spokes. Now i have to wait to get it fixed after our trip.
