    Is there any way to lace a Campy Eurus hub into a standard rim?

    I crashed my Eurus front wheel, but the hub is fine. The Eurus hub is a work of art and I hate the idea of wasting it. A new Eurus rim is over $150 and the Eurus spokes are over $70.

    Does anyone know of any non-Eurus spoke that would engage the hub adequately so that I could lace the hub into a standard rim?

    which version? what year?
    do you have any pics?
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Check out this video - this hub is an absolule work of art! I'm afraid that it cannot be used with standard spokes:

    I think the 1st question is where to get spokes in different lengths for that hub. Once u have that figure it out u are basically done.

    that video you posted was for the rear wheel.
    if you have the version with the thick, bladed spokes, then I think you are out of luck, as those spokes are proprietary.
