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

Garrett, I assume you need a rear. I have fronts if anyone needs one.

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.

Bonzai :)
