I broak one of my spokes and was wondering if anyone knew how much they are, I don't want to get ripped off at my LBS. They are just normal spokes not the fancy ones.

Most LBS will charge $1 a pop for a standard spoke with nip. Buy a bunch, when one spoke breaks it strains other spokes. Expect to break three to four spokes over the next 300 to 500 miles.

If it is on the rear wheel, check to see if you will need to remove the cog. If so, you will need a lock ring tool for removal.
