    Can any one tell me which spoke wrench I need?

    I have a GT Kararkoram 3.0....it is stock....Here it is...

    BlueSkyCycling.com - GT Karakoram 3.0 29er Bike

    I can't find anywhere in the manual that tells you what size spoke wrench to use, and I have nothing to accurately measure the nipple either.

    Thanks.

    Cool, thanks.....I've never seen one like that. I've only seen the specific sized ones. Going to order one now.

    Some of those universal spoke wrenches work good enough, but it you're going to be using it with any frequency I recommend getting a high quality wrench. My Crank Bros multitool had a pretty good wrench built into it, but once I started doing more and more spoke work I bought a Park spoke wrench.

    Sorry, I have no idea what size you need, but recommend getting a good spoke wrench. You want something that is easy to use and precision-manufactured.

    I like these -- they are less likely to bugger up the corners of your nipples, and will sometimes grip when someone else has rounded the corners with a cheap wrench.

    Park Tool Co. » SW-42 : Four-Sided Spoke Wrench : Wheel & Spoke

    Park advertises these for aluminum nipples, but brass is pretty soft too.

    Perdos made the best one -- a 4-sided diamond hole on one side and a regular 3-sided slot in the other. They don't make them anymore unfortunately.

    Maybe post on the GT forum, or call GT, or whoever sold it to you.
