I need a spoke!!!

Hey Guys,

I was washing my bike this evening and I saw that I had a busted spoke (part of the threads busted off inside the nipple). I was looking on parts fiche and was going to order another one...but you can only buy a complete spoke set :) Do any of you guys have one spoke and nipple lying around that I could buy from you? I would really appreciate it if you could help me out. Feel free to email me at motoman393@hotmail.com or give me a call @ 281-482-2522 Thanks,


BTW here is a pic of the busted spoke http://mx393.tripod.com/spoke.html

Im sure one of you guys have an old spoke lying around? Any of you guys that have had busted hubs have a stock spoke/nipple? I would appreciate it ALOT!


I can get a spoke (and nipple) in the mail for you tomorrow. What's your address? email me:

Hey...While were on this subject....Has anyone used the FASST Spoke Torque wrench? I just ordered one this morning because I bought a front wheel lock for my trailer and the first time I used it the bike fell over bending about 4 of my spokes. I think I overtorqued them when I straightened and tighnened them back up causing a side to side wobble in my front wheel. I figured that I should do it right an re-torque the entire wheel, hoping it will come back straight again.

do you still need a spoke?? (rear, right??)


I got one coming in the mail right now! Thanks,
