I broke a spoke on the rear wheel. I got it out but how do I tell what size spokes I have? My rims and hubs are pivit brand which are just rebadged for haro. I'm pretty sure the hubs are standard formula hubs and the rims look like wtb's. There's different gauges, different lengths? Can you tell what size nipples from the pictures? Can someone point me in the right direction here?

if you want to do it yourself, it's no too hard to measure the spoke in place with reasonable accuracy. measuring a spoke on the same side of the same wheel in which the spoke broke, start at the base of the bend (inside of the curve), measure to the end of the nipple, and add 11mm. those are straight gauge, 2.0mm spokes and 12mm brass (probably, but it doesn't matter too much) nipples.
