Spokes for Campy Shamals(7 posts)

Spokes for Campy Shamalsbimini

I just got a pair of Campy Shamals on ebay.

Nice Wheels.

Do you have to use Campy spokes? Are there any other more standard spokes that can be used with these?

I know Branford Bike Sells minikits for the Shamals which I will probably get before they get discontinued.

I don't have a problem now but I plan on racing these wheels so sooner or later I am sure I will need replacement spokes.

Murpheys law 13-9.6!
If you have spokes laying around for a wheelset you will just trash rim in a race! Then you will have those spokes in you tool box for years to come! :)
pretty sure Branford bike has themweiwentg

or at least can get hold of them. the Shamals use straight pull bladed spokes, and I think that at least DT makes straight pull spokes, but you're looking at a special order.

Does anyone know where to buy just the Shamal rim? I have a 16 hole Mavic hub that I got when a friend trashed his Cosmic Carbones... He's told me that finding a Carbone rim is like finding hen's teeth...
