Replacing spokes is pretty routine...not exciting...nor does it suck.

Go fiddle with a real derailleur or something...or try out a Campagnolo wine cork remover.

Excellent suggestion - I would suggest a white wine to chill out.

Don't tell me what "should" be - either it is, it isn't, or do something about it.

If you think I'm being blunt take it as a compliment - if I thought you were too weak to handle the truth or a strong opinion I would not bother.

Please respect others by taking the time to post clearly so we can answer quickly. All lowercase and multiple typos makes for a hard read. Thanks!
