Bicycle Mechanics - Good source for spokes?
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I have a (now) worn-out rear wheel for which I would like to replace all the spokes one by one. The spokes don't have to be top-notch ... since I might fail in the enterprise anyways. Nashbar doesn't have the color/size that I want. Performance hardly has anything. The bike warehouse sells wheelsmith, but in bundles of 50 which means buying 2 bundles (at $25 or $50 depending on butting) PLUS the nipples separately -- too pricey for an iffy project. Are there other sources, or is this just the way things are?

Mike (http://oddsandendos.safeshopper.com/20/cat20.htm?44) will sell you the exact number and size spokes you need and nipples are included. Shipping is reasonable and quick.
