I broke my spoke, it snapped off in the nipple,
Can i just leave the nipple in the wheel for now until i get a new spoke? im keen to go riding today and i dont have any spare spokes laying around.
My mate said one broken spoke is fine and i shouldn't worry about bending the rim or anything like that, is this true?

Yea, you should be ok, BUT fix it soon. A missing spoke puts a lot more stress on the spokes on either side of it, which can stress them to premature breaking.

I wouldn't ride on a broken spoke. You may need to get your wheel rebuilt.

Front or rear?

If it's a front it doesn't matter

If it's a rear it may just come out of true a bit...but it will not be catastrophic

I've been missing a front spoke for a few months. There's a tiny buckle but that's it. I just haven't got round to replacing it. Unless you're going to drop off something massive to flat it shouldn't be a problem

You will be ok ? It's an easy fix.. Pick up a spoke wrench, if you don't already have one
