Default Spoke Puller

I needed to re-lace my rear wheel to correct an oversight involving the spokes overlapping the sprocket mounting holes. I was dreading it because the spokes are a little on the short side and getting the nipples to grab requires super-human strength and three hands, or....

Google "spoke puller" and you get "Did you mean SPIKE puller?"

For about $7 I put together this little number. It's a cheap mini locking plier with the pivot rivet drilled out and screwed to a bar clamp. It's not perfect, as it doesn't take into account the angle which the spoke meets the rim but it did the job.
