Another broken spoke thread...
Search is down so I'm sorry if this is a repeated thread. I was riding a century recently and broke a spoke on my rear wheel, drive side. The wheel is a Rol Volant - basically a lightweight, 24 spoke wheel with aero spokes. I was able to true the wheel and get to the next rest stop where a mechanic replaced the broken spoke with a new (round) spoke.
I was given spare spokes when I bought the wheels so I now want to install the matching spare. I've read plenty of threads about needing to retension the wheel if you are replacing several spokes. My question is... should I retension the entire wheel? Or just get the new spoke in there and even out the tension? I have all the tools, truing stand, tensiometer, etc. so I can redo the whole wheel if needed. I'm just not certain if that is necessary. Thanks in advance!
