The Spoke Broke: Aftermath

The Lemond suffered from a broken spoke which at first left me feeling quite distraught, like having an injured child.  I had already ridden several miles on that wheel and my biggest fear that it was going to warp.  Yesterday I went to work replacing the spoke and afterward I was quite pleased when I realized that it only took a few adjustments to true the wheel.  Now I am back in business, the Lemmy is 100% and rode like a dream today.  Thank god I am a pack rat and tend to collect old bike parts so that they can be used again in the future.
