    Seeking Source for Straight-pull Spokes

    My son is seeking a source for 272-273mm straight-pull spokes for a Pulstar Mountain Bike. I've used Google to search the internet, but I can't find a source for suitable spokes. None of the three local (40 miles distant) bike shops are interested in the job. Can anyone suggest a source for these parts, please?

    Iron Monkey: a junkyard steel 26" slick-tired city bike. Grey Fox: A Trek 7x00 frame, painted, with everything built, from spokes up. Jet Jaguar: A 92 Cannondale R900 frame, powder coated matte black with red and aluminum highlights.

    I'm seeing staggering prices on these on Google. But all I did was type "straight pull spoke" into Google and it started telling me things.

    Staggering.

    You could email the guy at "Odds and Endos" http://www.oddsandendos.com/contactus.sc
    They have been helpful for me before with small numbers of very specific spokes. Their website is in transition so emailing would be necessary.
    Reduce. Reuse. Recycle. In that order.

    This is why I will no longer buy wheels with spokes other than traditional j bend variety. I see no benefit.
