    Norco Fluid FS - Snapped Spoke. Warranty?

    My husband has a Norco Fluid FS 7.2+ that is less than a year old. Yesterday, while pedalling uphill, a spoke just snapped. It's on the brake side of the rear wheel. The spoke itself snapped at the top of the nipple, the nipple appears to be fine. I wouldn't say we do a lot of riding that would be super hard on the wheels and he has never had any crashes with the bike. The wheel appears to be straight. Does anyone know if this is something that might be covered under warranty? How bad is it to continue riding on a wheel that is missing a spoke?

    Thanks!

    I doubt it would be covered by the manufacturer warranty. But if you bought it from a shop and they did a new bike tune up like most do, they may cover it. It all depends on the shop. Chances are that missing a spoke, the wheel would be out of true and that could lead to more damage to the other spokes as the tension is uneven.
