Today when in the garage, with the bike on the workstand i just happened to spin the cranks and i heard a clicking sound. Disc was true, and i couldnt spend time with it because i was late for class.

When I got home i noticed that the clicking sound was a broken spoke hitting the brake caliper...crap...how i broke the spoke (by the nipple) i have no freaking clue. Since this is my first broken spoke I dont really know what to do.

Can i just take a spoke from an old wheel lying around, or do the spokes on disc wheels have to be stronger than spokes on a rim brake wheel? Also all the spokes seem to be kinda on the loose side, i should probably just take it to a shop to have them retention them since it has never been done on this bike (had it since november).
