I've got a Huffy mountain bike that occasionally breaks spokes. (Please do not give a non-answer (such as replace the wheel, or remove the freewheel) to the upcoming question.)
I was in China and when replacing spokes on the freewheel side, the mechanics normally cut off the non-threaded end of a new, slightly longer spoke, and bend it in such a way (with long nose pliers) that it can be inserted into the hub eyelet without removing the freewheel. I've never had such a spoke pull out of the hub, and this kind of repair just takes a few seconds. Furthermore, any length spoke can used (must be at least longer than original spoke) because the excess is cut off.
My question is, can someone explain how to bend the spoke to do this kind of repair. Maybe include a simple drawing.
