Who makes them? Where can I find them?
I need them for a twenty-size-inch-wheel.
Can't answer your first two questions, but in order to get spokes correctly, you need to know the length and that takes into account the flange and rim measurements and then some. Knowing that it is a 20" wheel build does almost nothing to help.
Don't know about butted spokes but this thread may help, you still need to calculate soke lengths.
There are very few butted spokes available to fit a 20" wheel (Sapim do them). The only yellow spokes I've come across were made in the 80s but I've been out of the scene for a while. Good luck.

I meant to say 26" wheel, so much for typing. :crash::cry:
I know they make these yellow spokes.
I've seen them on custom built 700c race wheels. and tricked out BMX bikes,
and maybe even a mountain bike in a magazine.
The question remains, where does one find yellow spokes!?
It doesn't really matter about the size. I can always get a blank and cut it.
It doesn't even have to be double butted, I only need one... to offset the valve weight :thumb:
