Broke a spoke

After 40 years of riding, I finally broke a spoke. The worse one to break, too...rear wheel,
freewheel side. I had spokes and a truing stand, but no freewheel puller (old SunTour four-prong).
Hub was removed/destroyed by LBS (their tool, the wrong one I might add, was worn out itself), so
this gave me the excuse to replace the 6-speed cogset with a 7-speed (less than 15 bucks from
Nashbar). And while visiting my brother for some trail riding, I picked up a Park FR-1 so I won't
hafta go throught the hassle of running down to a (different) shop should this happen again.
