what tools to change and tighten spokes
edited November 2013
anyone know which tools i will need to remove and replace a shimano rs10 front wheel spoke
those are low spoke-count wheels, if one spoke fails it will put more strain on adjacent spokes, replacing the ones either side may reduce chance of another quick failure

...you'll need a 4mm key, this is the official shimano tool...

... £23.99, for a 4mm spanner, you can just hear shimano's marketing guys "bwahahaha"
check around, you'll find cheaper options, either get a 4mm spanner, or a park tool sw-3 is 3.96mm, seems likely it'll do the job
