I break a spoke about every 2000 miles. It is always on the rear drive side. In the past I've taken the wheel to the LBS and paid $20 for the new spoke and labor.
How hard is it to do this myself? I don't mean taking off the wheel, tire, and liner, that's easy. I mean how hard is it to adjust the new spoke to bring the wheel back true? Is it only the new spoke that I will have to adjust or will I have to mess with other spokes as well? Can I use my bike as a truing stand for this work?
I have visions of turning by rim into a pretzel because I don't know what I'm doing.
