How to replace bike wheel spokes
Broken or bent bicycle spokes can cause irreversible damage to your wheels. Fortunately, you can instantly replace one on your own. You only need to use a few tools such as tire irons, adjustable wrench, wire cutter, files, spoke wrench and bike pump. It would take you around 30 minutes to completely replace everything.
Here’s the step by step process:
- Position the bike upside down and ensure that it's positioned securely.
- Loosen the nuts with an adjustable wrench so you can remove the wheels.
- Deflate the tubes so you can remove the tyre faster.
- Once you remove the tyre, you can start removing the old spokes.
- Remove the defective bike spoke. You can use a new spoke so you can displace the old head. This will be faster compared to removing the head without the help of any tool.
- We highly recommend applying lubricant on the nipples after installing the spoke replacement. This will help protect the spokes from damage.
- When installing the replacements, you should follow the lacing pattern used. Take note of the pattern before you start removing the defective spokes.
