    on-line source for Wheelsmith DB15 spokes?

    I've been digging around for on-line sellers of Wheelsmith spokes who offer the 1.8/1.55/1.8 DB15 model. Wheelsmith's Web site indicates that they manufacture a nice range of lengths...

    http://wheelsmith.com/index_files/wsspokes.htm

    ...but they do not sell direct. I can find the odd example here and there, such as...

    http://aebike.com/page.cfm?PageID=30...ils&sku=WM4294
    and
    http://www.cambriabike.com/shopexd.asp?id=26834

    ...but no place seems to list a full assortment of lengths, as with the DB14 and some of the other Wheelsmith spokes.

    Does anyone know of a good source on-line for bags of 50 in a full range of lengths for the DB15?

    Thanks!
    -Greg

    Peter White Cycles sells them, but I'm not sure about bags. I'd give them a shout though, he builds a lot of wheels from what I understand and is particular to Wheelsmith DB15 I believe.

    Thanks for the tip.

    Looks like Peter goes for DB14; not a single mention of the DB15 on his site...

    ...but I'll definitely check in with Peter if things aren't panning out!

    Consider Wheelsmith XL14 spokes. They are 14/17/14 and are both light and durable. I had a set of Wheelsmith-made wheels assembled using Mavic CXP-33 rims, 32 hole Dura Ace hubs and XL14 spokes laced 3X and they lasted over 30,000 miles without requiring ANY truing.

    Sorry Greg, I could have sworn the quote I got on a wheelset included DB15 spokes, but you're right, it included DB14 spokes. If you have problems contacting Peter, I have found Linda to be easier to get in touch with. Good luck
