    I can't get a spoke wrench till the end of the week,

    so can I use something else that is safe ?

    I searched the simple search here and I don't get it, I

    put in Spoke Wrench and Nothing appeared that would directly connect me, I must be doing something wrong, but don't know what it is!

    I have a pair of needle nosed pliers in my tool kit for emergencies. Not sure how good an idea that is but I plan to be very careful. An adjustable wrench small version would work I think.

    I don't have a spoke wrench myself, but I do have a open end wrench that work's. I've been trying to get the size of it but it's very hard to read...9/64maybe?

    Yes, I have wrench's that small...I also have some that you need a fork lift to move rotfl

    Yeah I hope they get them in soon, I agree small adjustable,
    might work. If need I'll try it.-TY

    Would you have any considerations for the out of round rear wheel its out maybe enough to notice, I have been riding around on it, what am I gonna pay for that ?

    Try to straighten it first, it's pretty easy.
