    I have 1 broken spoke on my rear tire and was wondering how quickly I need to get it fixed? Can I still ride on it? I know this is a safty thing.

    Thank you

    I would address that asap. I only have bicycle experience with broken spokes, but it is no fun when the wheel blows apart. I might limp home with it, but I wouldn't push it any further. JMO

    Good advice Joy, I agree there. The wheel is only as good as it;s parts and if one is broken there's a weak link. Get it fixed to be safe and check the wheel for true.
