I have looked and looked over the years, and have never found a specific place that sells replacement spokes for bicycles. I have, however, been able to contact some local bicycle repair and/or sales shops, and been able to purchase used replacements from the shop. Most times, however, I have purchased new wheels. Of course, you could always go to the local hardware store that sells bulk rolls of metals, and have them cut the proper sizes for you. I have done this before, too. And I'm fairly certain that I found what I needed at Home Depot.

Happy Peddling!

I need a replacement rear wheel rim for my Edgewood lx hybrid


you didn't specify why you need a new wheel, is it just out of true, is it broken, is it bent?
If the wheel just needs to be trued this is an easy fix for most mechanics. You can even do it yourself using the brake pads as a guide. If a spoke is broken, this can be easily replaced and retrued. If the rim is actually bent or broken, then the rim should be replaced.
Rims can be replaced but they require a good mechanic that has the skill to relace the wheel, true it and tension it properly and at a minimum a decent mechanic with these skills will charge $25-50 for the labor. Assuming that the mechanic can get the exact same rim you are looking at about $20-50 for the rim. If that particular rim is not available then they can get something similar but it will most likely require a new set of spokes because rims are different thicknesses. Most shops charge $1-3 per spoke times 32 or 36 spokes for a typical wheel.

The easiest fix is to just buy a prebuilt wheel, these will typically run about $25-65+ for a complete wheel (not including tire, tube and rimstrip).
Your local bike shop/Diamondback Raleigh dealer will be able to help you determine what is best for your situation.

How do I change the back rim on the bike?


To change just the rim is a pretty big job, since you would have to remove every spoke and assemble a new wheel. But maybe you are asking how to straighten the wheel? If the bend is a bit of a wobble, and not a sharp kink, then you can usually true-up the wheel by adjusting the spokes. If this happened kind of suddenly, then you probably have a broken spoke. Pull on every spoke one at a time to see if that is the case. If none are broken, then you only need a spoke key. There are several styles, all pretty cheap, but they aren't all the same size. Look on YouTube for a how video on trueing bike wheels.
If you do have a broken spoke, and it is on the left side, then it's not too hard to replace. Just get the right size spoke and spoke key and you can do it without even removing the wheel. If you have a broken spoke on the right side you will almost certainly have to remove the wheel from the bike. There are several types with corresponding different tools and can be a bit tricky. Look for info on Parktool.com

Broken spoke in rear wheel. What could have caused it and is a replacement simple?


I ride a Trek 6.9 and have had spokes break for no apparent reason. Most of the time the spoke will break from over tightening on initial installation or just plain fatigue. Replacing the spoke is fairly straight forward. Remove the wheel from the bike and remove the tire. Remove the protective tape on the inside of the wheel to gain access to the spoke nut. After replacing the spoke you must make sure the wheel is true. If you do not have a set up for this, reassemble the wheel with the new spoke and take the assembly to your nearest bike store. They should have the equipment to true up your wheel assembly

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!

Rear spoke is broken, how do I remove the gears so I can fix it


Hello. Actually you do not need to remove the gears or even the wheel to replace a broken spoke. If you are mechanically minded and have tools just let the air out of the tire, pull it to one side and replace the spoke. If you do not have the tools, go to a bike shop for this quick fix. J.

Broken spokes on rear wheel


It is not that hard to replace a few broken shokes. All you have to do is take the rim off the bike and take the tire off of the rim. Install the new spokes and tighted them to the specs and put everything back on the bike and take it for a ride. After riding, I would check the spokes and retight to make sure there ready for your next ride.
