The fiber spokes are simple and easy to use and are must for long distance touring. Essential item for a tool bag. I carry (2) fiber spokes when long distance touring in case I break a spoke on the free wheel side because I do not carry the tool to remove the free wheel. May 2009, my riding partner and I met a cyclist from New York on the road a few days earlier and we all were headed west. About 60 miles east of Murphysboro, Il. our new cycling friend broke two spokes on the rear rim freewheel side. My partner and I had 3 fiber spokes between us. Our friend use two of them which allowed him to repair and true the wheel and ride another 50 miles to the nearest bicycle shop. The following day he broke another spoke and reused one of the fiber spokes used the previous day.
