    Guys and Gals

    This is not a difficult thread. But I have a Madone 5.2 (2013) with the stock Bontrager wheels and wanted to know if the 3.45mm spoke wrench was the correct size for this wheel and if not which one is it.

    Thanks

    Go to your LBS and they will (hopefully!!!) sell you the correct Spoke Wrench ...

    FWIW. ROLF wheels which became BONTRAGER wheels used to use DT nipples (i.e., the "Black" Spoke Wrench) ...

    So, I would presume THAT the current Bontrager wheels use DT nipples.

    I used micromiter to measure and it came out 3.45 and that is the black one that Park sells so I think I've got it figured out. Thanks for the response.

    Just buy a spoke key for $5, it'll work on all nipple sizes.
