Anybody know where I can get a spoke nipple for a Shimano WHR-550 wheel ?

I've broken one of the spoke nipples, the spoke itself is OK, but the nipple has fallen apart and just pulled straight out of the hub.

Rear, non-drive side. The wheel is remarkably true considering it's now only got 19 spokes - I was only aware of it becuse of a rattling sound which turned-out to be the spoke flapping about, the wheel was true enough to not even be binding on the brake.

The problem is getting a replacement nipple - LBS don't have any, can't find any online.

Cheers, Andy
