Live in really rural area far from city with no car. LBS doesn't seem to have the right spoke or whatever, and it is on order.
I need a replacement spoke for my Fuji Crosstown 4.0 linked below. Unfortuantly, the bike is sitting in the shop. It is on the rear wheel so I forget if it is on the freewheel side or on the longer side, so I want a long one and a short one. I want to get one 2 day mail so I can get back on my bike. It has been broke since Saturday. It wasn't the shop's fault it has been so long as they are closed on weekend evenings and Sundays. I couldn't drop it off till Monday.
Also can you point me to a total replacement for the back wheel and the front wheel that I can just throw a tube and tire on when I do this and keep rolling? I want a spare rear wheel 36 spoke with a 7 speed freewheel (look at the stats I link below) for a reasonable price from a good retailer. Please note according to specs this is a free wheel and not a cassette.
I'm going to end up having to learn to do this stuff, I'm afraid if I want to keep rolling.
I know this is a lot of trouble, but can someone point me to the exact tool I'd need to remove the freewheel if I end up needing to do this stuff myself. The way I'm thinking of it is that you'd remove the rim. Then the tire, tube, and tape. If it is on the freewheel side you'd take it off (somehow) - thread the spoke through the 'hub' and screw it into the rim and tension it then you'd sit it on the 'bike frame' and try to true it with a spoke wrench. That is what I think, correct me if I'm wrong.
Thanks so much - really.
