Where to get non standard spokes(2 posts)

Where to get non standard spokesFLorenzo
Feb 14, 2003 7:23 PM
I have a pair of Bianchi levitation wheels. Basically the same wheel as sold by supergo as a Formula Xero XR1.(Black good looking 16 spokes) I bought them from a friend who had used them for some time. I broke a spoke in the real wheel while riding and I had to struggle a lot to get some spokes to rebuilt the wheel. Anybody know other sources for 2.3/2.0 spokes? (13/14 gauge) I checked the Wheelsmith website and they make it, but most bike shops do not carry it DT does not make this type. (supergo doesn't carry them). I finally found the guys from YellowJersey.org to order some, but I read in the forums that people break spokes on low spke wheels. Where do you guys buy them?

Thanks

Get your LBS to order what you want from QBP. You might have to get a full box, but you will have them. If you get the size that is = to the longest, I can cut and thread the spokes to the size you need. Send me your e-mail address and I will use it to send the pertinant details.
