    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

    according to...

    ...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
    my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny
