Just back from a ride and about 5 miles from home, felt like I had a flat on the back. FUCK. Got off, took a look, nope tire is good - WTF the whole wheel is buckled to fuck. mmmm on closer inspection, a spoke nipple had broke - spoke was fine but the nipple had just broke clean off. Never seen that before. I figured I was OK to ride home - slowly - on it. I backed the brakes way off so it wouldn't catch and crawled home.
