This morning as I got on my bike for the ride to work, I heard that infamous pinging sound. I made it a few blocks down the street before the brakes began to rub, and I knew for sure that I had broken a spoke.
My question...I assume the spoke broke because of the drastic change in temperature (70 inside, 10 outside). Now, since the wheel is completely stock and 4 years old, would I be better off replacing the single spoke, replacing all the spokes or buying a completely new wheel? I will be riding all winter long, and I would hate to have to bring the wheel back into the shop later in the winter.
