Broke my first spoke this evening!
11.75 miles into my ride I heard a pronounced POP from the back wheel! I knew exactly what it was when I heard it, but I couldn't find it at first. I got back on to continue, thinking I must be mistaken... 'til I saw the wobble in the wheel! I looked a bit closer and found the popped spoke behind the cassette! I walked it up the road about a quarter mile to the top of a small hill by a farmhouse.
Luckily this didn't happen about 10 minutes earlier when I was doing 30mph down a hill!
I made the call of shame to the Mrs and sat there in the shade until she got there!
It looks like I'm headed to the LBS tomorrow. grrr!
