Hey Recently cycling home, there was quite a loud noise from my back wheel area. I didn't know what it was, so I cycled on home.. (perhaps not the best plan, oh well). I looked at the wheel back at home, and a spoke has broken. Also, the wheel is not aligned inbetween the brake pads anymore. I turned the bike upside down, and took the wheel out, and then dropped it back in. When I make sure its definitely all the way down into the sort of teeth/grooves for the wheel to drop into (whatever you call them), it resumes its position pressed against one of the brakes, rather than being aligned between the brakes. All I can think that has happened is that when the back wheel was last put on, it wasn't pushed all the way down into the teeth/grooves that it sits in, and was tightened not all the way in. When I heard the noise, that was the wheel falling down finally to the bottom of the grooves - the spoke broke on the impact. Does this sound reasonable do you think? It's just my best guess. Anyway, I don't really know what to do. It's not ridable at the moment, and the small screw ontop of the brakes used for small adjustments is far too precise for how offer centre the brakes are here - they need some sort of major realignment it seems. Is that easy to do? And can I just snap the spoke off, and forget about it? Sorry for the long post! Thanks Cycle Chat.
