Most modern bicycle wheels made up of spokes, a rim, and a hub. The spokes are all under tension and this is what gives wheel its strength. All new wheels will lose some tension after a short amount of time and routinely checking and adjusting tension, is part of bike ownership. 

 

Replacement:
If you need to replace spokes, it may be best to call your local bike shop, if they don't have them, they can likely order them. Alternatively you could purchase replacement spokes from

  • Spokes on Ebay
  •  Wheel Builder or . Please verify you are buying the correct spokes and nipples


*PLEASE remove and measure your spoke to confirm the length & gauge before placing an order. Some have changed over time.*
