What size spoke wrench do I need?
#1
I see that park has three different size spoke wrenches. What size nipples are on most vintage road bikes? What size spoke wrench do I need?

I found it easier just to buy a spoke wrench with multiple sizes on it. I didn't know what mine was until then, and it also works with other wheels besides mine.

I agree with what namedused said above, but be careful of the quality you choose. Reason is that some of the "cheap" ones are mass made losing their quality and not being the right size. On the other hand if you buy all three then no matter what bike you get in the future you will have the right size if you change bikes Wink.
Good maintenance to your Bike, can make it like the wheels are, true and smooth!
