my huffy wheel broke 3 spokes when my chain derailed off the tensioner wheel. so now i'm looking for a new wheel. it needs to have six sprockets. i think its a "freewheel" thanks for your help. i'll post a pic of my old wheel later.

wouldn't it be cheaper to take it to a bike shop and have them replace the broken spokes. Or even buy the spokes you need from them and do it yourself. I replaced a couple of mine when it did the same thing.

I know at the local bike shop it's $1.50 a spoke and that includes the little nut.

i took it to a shop and they said that they couldn't "true" the wheel back to being usable. so, i really don't want to pay the shop 50 bucks for a new wheel. just thought i'd ask on here to see if someone would ship one if they had one for cheap. thanks
