So I had flat yesterday on the way home and noticed that I also had a broken spoke. I ride a '75 Raleigh Sprite, which is all original to my knowledge (excepting the tires, tube, and brake pads). Does anyone have any advice on sizing and installing a new spoke?
I think the wheels are 27". In the past, I've usually only replaced the spoke, not the nipple. However, given the age of this nipple, I figure it warrants replacement too. Did Raleigh use standard sized spokes back then? Or will I now have an odd duck spoke that is incompatible with the rest?
