    Bent up my spokes

    Oops.. not sure if it this happened before or after I lost my rear derailleur. (chain did jam in spokes, but I didn't torque it any).

    Krysium SL rims.. I see some used pairs on Ebay around $280.. need 9 speed though. I do have a spacer on there, so I think it's an 8/9.

    Spokes feel tight and rim still looks true. Going to check out of round, but I think that is still good by eyeballing it on the bike before.

    I probably shouldn't ride this?

    I guess I'll see how much the shop wants to rebuild.

    Just put it on the truing stand. A little more wheel wobble than I want. Front is within spec.

    I see a new wheel in your future, that wheel isn't worth rebuilding, IMO.

    You might be right.

    I'm guessing this is a 2004-2007 model Krysium SL spoke.

    New spokes are no more, and the drive side used spokes are sold out.

    I did find a used rear rim that looks in good shape - but missing one non-drive side spoke.

    8, 9, 10 speed are the same freehub width. You could even use an 11-speed if you have the extra spacer.

    Thanks.

    I guess I'm looking at the Mavic, Zipp 30, or Ultegra.

    Yes, they say "10/11 speed". They all have an 11-speed freehub, but can be used with an 8, 9 or 10 speed cassete with a spacer.

    If you can true the wheel then it is most likely OK to ride for a long time. The worst case scenario is that the spoke breaks and you have to replace the wheel.

    Let this be a lesson for you about wheels with proprietary spokes. If that had happened to me, I would have replaced the spoke when I got home from the ride, trued the wheel, and never given it another thought. But that is because I have spokes left over from when I built the wheels and there is nothing proprietary in my build.

    I see 3 or 4 spokes bent right at where they flatten (i.e., at a 'stress risor'), so YES, those spokes are unsafe! Replace them!
