After a few good years of service, one of the nipple holes on my stock Axis road rear wheel broke. I'm not sure it is worth going to a bike shop to have it rebuilt as it is probably going to cost more than buying new equivalent, but I would be interested in actually rebuilding the wheel myself.
I know how to do basic truing, and I have the proper tools to adjust and measure the spoke tension. However I am not sure of which rim to buy? I can't really find an exact replacement of my rim, so can I buy a rim from another brand? It yes, what should I check before doing do? Rim height and width, and spoke number?
Should I look into also replacing the spokes, or keeping the original one should be fine? They don't look damaged or bent.
