How to Replace a Broken Spoke

Typically the LBS has to order a blank black spoke, then cut and thread it to size.

I called my LBS where I bought both of my bikes and even though they sell a lot of Aventon e-bikes, they said they would have to order the spoke. Has anyone been able to find a place that carries black 13 gauge spokes? The previous posts were for 12 and 11 gauge, but I want to replace mine with the same size spoke.

TxAventon, that nipple will rattle around until you remove the tube valve and let the nipple fall out of the valve hole.

Thanks, I might give that a try this weekend. I bought mine from the inventory of a LBS in December 2019 and both wheels seem to have the same gauge spoke. (ie. The back does not look noticeably thicker than the front)
