I suggested he ask them also for a couple of spare spokes. Not sure how many of the RAGBRAI mechanics will stock the flat spokes of the Race X-lite…
It happens. I have a reasonably new set of Mavic Ksyrium SL’s on my bike (1,000 miles) and snapped a rear spoke last week. I got a couple new spokes from my local shop just in case. I put them in a piece of PVC to carry them in.
