Used Speed Uno needs new spokes and front brakes
I picked up a used Dahon Speed Uno but the rear wheel has 3 broken spokes. I called Thorusa but they didn't know what replacement spokes lengths was for the Speed Uno.
I don't know enough about rebuilding and lacing new spokes to tear apart my rear wheel.
What type and spoke length is for the Speed Uno?
I did find other post elsewhere suggesting to buy SJS spokes from the UK.
British made 14g stainless steel plain gauge spoke - £1.84
Is that necessary? Are there alternatives that works just as well?
This poor Speed Uno was all dirty and looks to have been rode like a BMX. I'm trying to clean it up and put a front brake on it.
Is there a front brake kit(caliper, cables, levers) that works good? Is that front wheel rim designed to take a front brake?
Thanks for any help/suggestions.
