A new spoke should be around $1.00 +/-. It's better to replace it, as it sounds like the spoke nipple might be stripped, or at least compromised. It's an easy job, just follow the interweaving pattern of the other spokes. If you take the old one to the bike store, they can match it up exactly.

Can you adjust the tension on the wheel?


What sort of tension?
Rim loose on spokes: evenly tighten the spokes to add tension ( very high skill required to keep the rim true. Pro help should be sought)
Too much wheel side play: tighten the wheel to frame axle bolt (unless the bearing is gone, then you'll need new hub bearings).
Chain tension too loose: Move the rear wheel away from the pedals by loosening the axle bolt, pulling back to remove most (but not all) or the slack from the chain. Pay attention to the alignment of the wheel in the frame. Tighten the nuts back down

I just god a new tire, tube, rim and spokes. Except i dont know how to install the spokes! How do i install spokes through the holes and to the rim? What is the correct order to put them in? What direction...


Thank you for the inquiry.
This is one of those projects in life that best requires special tools (Spoke Jig) and a lot of patience. I also recommend a couple of good quality spoke wrenches. The one that comes with your tool kit usually is for general emergency spoke tightening and minimal maintenance. Even at the shops there is not to many people that know how to do this well. It's time consuming and shop labor is expensive.
That being said here goes:
To get started you will need to know a couple of things:
  1. Spoke lacing pattern
  2. Rear sprocket/hub alignment position. (Chain must run true from front primary sprocket) this applies only if this is a rear wheel.
I've posted a link to some helpful pictures of wheel lacing on various bikes to give you a few tips and pointers. http://www.rcycle.com/wheellacing.html
Look at the spoke pattern on your other wheel to determine the direction to push the spokes through and determine the spacing pattern for the short or long spokes.
1) Lay the hub flat on a bench and install the spokes loosely in correct pattern. 2) Lay the rim over the spokes and push them through. Spoke direction corresponds to the receiving angle on the rim. Important to get started correctly than alternate. 3) Thumb tighten a couple of the nuts/ferrels loosely to hold rim in position. 4) Tighten nuts according to get the hub centered as best as possible (just to temporarily hold) 5) You can build a fixture with a couple of 2 x 4s as shown in the illustration or carefully clamp the bikes axel in a vice, not to damage the threads or pinch the axel nut.Horizontal position. 6) You will need to clamp a coat hanger or a heavy piece of wire to something solidly fixed to act as a reference guide. 7) Tighten spokes first for correct up/down centering then for left/right centering. 8) UP and Down: Position your gauge wire close to the top/front of the rim and rotate. Finger tighten and loosen the spoke nuts until you get the wheel running true for up/down motion. Keep going around and redoing until you get it as perfect as you can finger tight only. 9) Move you wire gauge to the side of the rim and repeat process. The front rim has a disc brake position to align for (not to critical) and the rear rim has a critical sprocket position to maintain. You will have to measure the sprocket offset to get it correct. Chain must run true. 10) Spin the rim on the axel for reference and Keep going around and tightening and loosening the spokes until you get the side alignment running true. May take a while and many spins. 11) Once you get the rim running true for both wobble and run out you are ready to slowly start tightening the spoke nuts with your spoke wrench's. Take you time and keep tightening in tiny amounts until you get tight and true. Tap the spokes as you go and listen for tension. 12) When you tap if you get a dull thunk - it's a little loose. If you get a ringing musical string sound you know you are tight and/or close depending on the amount of ring. Take your time.
Before you mount the tire be sure you mount the rim on the bike and run the axel in place to final check for front brake rotor alignment or real sprocket alignment. You may have to adjust.
I have always wrapped duct tape in the V-slot to hold the nuts and prevent spokes from coming up and puncturing the tube. Go around several times. Just maintain the groove so you can still have room to place the tire bead in to stretch for mounting.
Best wishes and good luck from a fellow biker/racer.

I bought a Huffy sea star 20 inch bicycle last year, the rear wheel keeps puncturing the inner tube, a spoke has come loose and the wheel wobbles. can't find a replacement wheel. Help!!!!!


Don't replace the wheel, get it fixed. The spoke can be tightened and the rim tensioned and trued. The rim strip probably needs to be looked at for exposing the spoke ends to the tube.

A spoke on the rear wheel has snapped off how can I repair it?


Simply buy a replacement spoke. Unscrew the dustcap on the tyre valve and deflate the tyres inner tube. Remove tyre using tyre levers(as you do to repair a puncture). Next remove the inner tube to reveal the spoke tensioners. undo the tension nut and allow the broken spoke to fall out, feed the other part of the broken spoke out of the hub. feed the replacement spoke through the hub and into the hole on the wheel rim. Now screw on the tensioning nut to the spoke.Tighten up to the same tension as the other spokes. replace inner tube and tyre, then reinflate. Viola!

Hi my name is T.K. I just relaced my front wheel and now I'm trying to true it. I have a tusk truing stand and a spoke torque wrench. This is my first time doing this so I'm trying to find out if there is...


Place the wheel on a truing stand or take an axle and clamp it in a vice so that the wheel will be horizontal (the axle is vertical) when placed on it. Go around the wheel with a spoke wrench and put a little tension on each spoke. Next, put the surface gauge in position and give the wheel a spin. The loose-laced wheel will wiggle in one of three ways: It will roll from side to side, it will have either a hump or dip, or once the other problems are addressed, the entire rim may sit either too high or low, relative to the hub. Since side-to-side motion (which is an up-and-down motion if the wheel is positioned horizontally on the axle) is the easiest to remedy, start by finding the center point of the twist. Spokes will pull the rim sideways when they are tightened so tighten the spokes that would pull in the opposite direction as the twist. For example, if the rim is high in one section (assuming it's on the stand horizontally), tighten the spokes on the bottom side of the rim. Do just the opposite for low sections. Only turn the nipples in the center of the high point one or two of the flat sides and nipples at the outside of the imperfection one or no flats, depending on the severity of the side-to-side roll. Several small adjustments may be necessary to fix the problem.

Can you teach me how to tiet the spokes to the rim?


If you are meaning how do you tighten the spokes, you'll first need a spoke spanner.(you can get one from a bike shop if you havn't got one).
Next raise the wheel you want to adjust off the ground.
Next, if they are all a little loose,mark one spoke with some tape.Starting at that spoke you marked tighten each one an eighth of a turn till you get back to the tape marked spoke.
Next, tape a small piece of plastic(I use a zip-tie) to the L/H fork leg(for a front wheel) or the L/H side of the swing arm(for a rear wheel) so its nearly touching the rim.
Now slowly rotate the wheel & watch the gap between the rim & the zip-tie to see that the wheel is true.
If the gap gets bigger stop there & loosen the spokes(one quarter of a turn) on the rim that are on the R/H side at that spot & thghten the spokes that are next to the zip-tie. This effectivly pulls the rim across
& reduces the gap. This is called trueing the rim.
The gap(run-out) can be 2 to 3 mm and that is ok.
Hope this helps.
If you ment how do you replace the spokes then this is much more tricky. I suggest you go to an expert but if you really must do it yourself you'll have to tell me what sort of bike, which weel(front or rear) it is plus the year/model & i'll try & talk you through it.(but it WONT BE EASY)

How do I true a rimm


Take your tire and tube off remove the rubber gasket that goes around the rim on inside. Your spokes should have a square connector at the ends tighten and loosen individual spokes on opposite sides the way your rim is bent, it takes a lot of time.Then your spokes will be sticking up into the rim grind those down so the don't poke through your gasket. Do this on the the bike frame so you can spin the rim. you can get a spoke tightener at your hardware store.This is a pain in the **** i take mine to a bike shop to have it done!
