Kysrium SL spokes

Anyone know where you can buy Kysrium SL spokes? I'd bought a few on eBay a while back, but a recent check there did not turn-up anything.

Thanks!

question, why do you need sl spokes? i have been runnning elites for approximately 5500 miles now w/o a spoke problem or failure. in fact, the wheels are perfectly true. best wheels i have ever owned in over 45 years of cycling. oh and i am 6'4" and 22o lbs.

Some 'jamoke' chopped me so hard on our group ride last night that he bent one of my spokes! I have no idea how I didn't go down. Otherwise, my experience with these wheels is similar to yours (except for the rim cracking around the spokes last year....that's another story).

Anyway, I'd love to buy a package of replacement spokes.

Thanks!
You can buy them from any Mavic dealer. Mavic does not sell via eBay dealers and anyone buying from eBay should be aware that they are on their own, as far as support goes.

Also, there are three generations of Kysrium SL's and the spokes are specific to each. So, by getting your spokes from a dealer you can be assured of getting the ones you need for your specific wheel.

That's about what I'd expect a dealer to sell a 10 pack for. What does "each" mean? If that's per spoke, keep looking for some sanity.

We sell them by the each for $3.10 each(And stock about a $2000 worth of Mavic spokes for just about all their wheels). As do many bike shops.

Yes, the sanity I was referring to. Thanks, Chuck!
