I was going to air up my rear tire today and found that the wheel was rubbing the brake pads. After futzing with the brakes I realized the wheel was out of true. After buying a spoke wrench I realized that the loose spoke was in fact broken!
So I'd like to get it fixed soon since I've been using this bike to get to work. I'm not surprised it broke really, I weigh 260 pounds and I've accidentally hit a couple good potholes. But now I'm worried that it was already out of true to begin with.
So can I buy a spoke and fix it myself, or should I go to the shop and make sure the whole thing checks out?
