If not, call Branford to see what they can locate.

Your LBS should be able to order them for you.

Yeah I saw that site, will call them tommaro, as for the local bike shop, well lets say they see one campy bike a year.. thats mine.. but I asked them they are not sure, I took a look through their supplier book and it listed all but vento..

Its just one spoke that got bent, from a stick that flew up while trail riding on my Bianchi crosser
Wheel is still pretty true but I figure there are not a whole lot of spokes in the first place on these wheels I should get it replaced..

Where do you live that has only one campy bike?

Ventos are bombproof wheels how do you need spokes so soon.

Can you just use a regular spoke and an inverted nipple on the inside of the rim?
