Hello fellow cyclists,
I will be buying spokes for my wheel as the hub + rim of my current are still in good condition.
RIMS : Alex ALX-290, 700c, alloy double wall, machined sidewalls
FRONT HUB: Alex ALX-290, 20 hole, sealed bearing, black
REAR HUB: Alex ALX-290, 24 hole, sealed bearing freehub, black
The measurements I received from the manufacturer are 285/287 mm for the rear and 278 mm for the front.
I have noticed that there is a lack of 285/287 mm spokes, and if they are around they cost extra.
How should I go about purchasing the spokes, I've spent some time researching and I haven't come across anyone with the same measurements or anything similar. I've read many suggestions that say to buy the same length spoke, how would this work?
Also anyone have a great deal on double butted spokes? black would be preferred. (I might just go with stainless steel)
