SOURCE: spokes on back wheel detached

you need to take the wheel to a shop who re-builds wheels, the tire has to come off and new spokes fitted then they have to TRUE the wheel to make sure it is not buckled then re-fit the tire. not something you should really be doing yourself. if i am right in thinking you are in the UK then buy a copy of Motorcycle News, you should be able to find a wheel builder in there. i only know of 1 place ALF HAGON they mainly do shocks but i had a wheel straightened there years ago when i lived there. i think they are in Woodford ESSEX.

A bike shop can cut you replacement spokes to fit the size of your stroller wheel. In Canada that's about $30/spoke. Bike shops also sell you replacement tubes and tires for your stroller.

SOURCE: Broken spoke in rear wheel. What could have caused

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

SOURCE: What is the proper tool to remove rear wheel

You need a freewheel/cassette removal tool. Here's a link to Park Tools page (great quality tools at reasonable prices) http://www.parktool.com/category/freewheel-cassette There are several different types to fit different styles. My usual method is to remove the quick release skewer, place the tool on the freewheel/cassette, put the skewer back on to hold the tool in place (skewer should be just a little loose). Put the tool side of the wheel down and clamp it in a vise. Then grab the wheel with your hands and twist it sharply (not slow and steady) counter-clockwise. Good luck, Vote if you found this helpful. Al K

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!

Motorcycle wheel


I m an MX rider and spokes must be done professionally. Once spoked locktight is used. Ive seen my friend break 7 ribs on a fall when the spokes he replaced collapsed on a jump. 2 months no riding and R1000 damage.

Bicycle Rear Wheel Problem


Tighten the two pinion gear bolts that are holding the rear wheel, if the wheel is wobbling, then that is the problem.

If this does not fix the problem, you will probably better buy a new wheel, or replace the whole pinion gear and axis assembly, better to replace the wheel.
