    What Size Spoke Wrench?

    I ride a Trek ZX 6500 with 26x1.95 tires. I don't know how big the rims are (26"?). What size spoke wrench do I need?

    the one that fits the snuggest.
    I know it seems like a broad answer, but that's just how it is, there's a whole variety of sizes that aren't dependant on wheel size at all.

    most likely green or black handle, but you never know.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Park's red.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    Rim size has nothing to do with spoke wrench size needed unfortunately. Neither does tyre size.

    I wasn't sure about mine either, so I took the front wheel off and brought it to the shop, matched it up there. Turned out to be "red".
