Broken spoke

Postby MickTheMove » Sun Nov 03, 2013 16:38 pm

I have had a broken spoke on my mavic cxp22 original back wheel, the spoke is on the hub end of the drive side, my question is, can these repaired as I read about factory wheels being unserviceable or is that just the hubs?

I have a set of hand builts on the way, but would like to keep a spare set for just in case, do I try and have it repaired or buy a cheap pair of nice looking wheels ?

Thanks

You should have J bend spokes, which means it can be repaired for a few quid. It can be that other spokes will follow, in which case give up... a rebuild will exceed the cost of a budget set

Thanks ugo , was worried they would have to be binned, will repair and keep as a spare, means the archetype will get christened a bit earlier than expected!
