Location: South Carolina
Who knew that the following description would strike such terror: "295mm bladed direct pull Shimano spoke...." I broke a rear wheel spoke on saturdays ride and needed to get fixed before race in two weeks. [Remeber that my closest bike shop is over hour away] I've used the same shop in Columbia, SC for 18+ years; however, Ms. A wanted to go to Charleston, SC (also an hour away). So the adventure began with a list of bike shops in the GREATER Charleston area. Four shops visited and calls to several others resulted in......, my now going to Columbia tomorrow and dropping my wheel off so they can special order some spokes.
