I recently bought a second hand city bike. After a 2 weeks I got a flat tire. On closer inspection it looks like this is due to the spoke. The rim tape is fine though. It seems that this particular spoke was changed by the previous owner and its end is more prominent than the others. Can this be the reason? Can I safely cut the excess?
This is the spoke I think caused the puncture (although the rim tap seems fine.
This is the look of the other spokes.
