Just a short quick question: broken spoke.

Nice and simple, I’ve got a broken spoke. Should I keep riding untill I can get it fixed in two more days or should I wait the two days? Will it cause unrepireable damage? Damage to the hub? Weaken?

It shouldn’t damage the hub but it’ll put more strain on the rest of the spokes and you might break a few more. Worse case, you’ll bend your rim as well and make it a lot harder to true. Just riding around you’ll probably be fine, jumping off stuff isn’t a good idea

Sweet, cheers.

I’ve got a DX and have had a broken spoke for a couple months. My shit squeaks real bad, but I’m not worried about the integrity of the rim. I’ve got 48 spokes, most only have 36.
