Is it that hard to replace spokes on a Ksyrium SSC?
Need to replace the drive side spokes (or a tleast several of them) on my older model Ksyrium SSC. Reputable LBS is telling me it's iffy whether their work will be bulletproof, that they have had people come back with broken spokes after this type of work, that's it's tough to get the tension right due to the spoke type, etc.
They told me best best is to spend $180 and send the wheel back to Mavic and have them do a complete rebuild.
Is this the general thinking? Spending $180 is not an attractive option. Though the wheel is probably worth a bit north of that, I really didn't want to shell out that kind of dough.
