I really really need to true my wheels on my 2006 fuji track and I need to know what spoke wrench I need to get...the fuji website says my spokes are 14g stainless..but there are spoke wrenches that are for 14g euro (0.130") and 14g asian (0.136")..Im assuming since fuji is supposedly a japanese bike that it would have the 14g asian spoke nipples..but you never know..also are any of the multi size spoke wrenches good?..thanks for any help

Just go to a shop. If that's not an option, pedros makes a spoke wrench with all three common sizes. It's like $12 and kind of uncomfortable to use, but if you only need one size you can wrap the other two with tape and it will suck less. Or just buy some calipers, they have 100 other uses.

You can get a wrench with size 0, 1, and 2. Just do that. I believe they're size 0, but don't take my word for it.

Another vote for the 3-sized spoke wrench. It is a little hard on the fingers, but at least your friends can true their wheels at your place too.

ok..thank you!..first off, going to a shop isnt possible cuz Dominica doesnt have a bike shop..they have a couple shops with random MTB parts that also carry things like car tires, rebar and various tools for things I dont even know what they are for, but I dont think anyone on this island has ever seen a fixed gear before, let alone knows what size my nipples are (hehehe)..also, I emailed fuji, but they havent gotten back to me yet.. i was thinking of just getting the 3 size one, but heard they sorta suck..i guess it cant suck as much as my wobbly wheel tho hehe..
