Spokes for Easton Wheels?

Carried my bike 2.2 miles home after breaking a front spoke on my EA90 SL. The wheel was rubbing hard against the fork leg so adjusting the F brake was out of the question. And...no spoke wrench. I plan on bringing the wheel to my LBS tomorrow but was wondering if they are going to have spokes for this wheel. They are round SS spokes, a little on the thin side. If they don't have the right replacement can these be ordered anywhere?

They are Sapim double butted straight pull spokes. If your LBS can't get them you can get replacements directly from Easton by calling 877-835-6629 (although you may have to buy a pack of 5).

Thanks for the quick replies. I should have said I have the EA 90 SLX. They only have about 2K miles on them.
If my LBS doesn't have them I will call Easton and order a few as I love these wheels.
Thanks again.

By the way the spokes do not come with nipples so if you want them make sure you order as mentioned you need to buy in sets of 5.

I ordered spokes and nipples. When I got to the LBS there was another broken spoke - the next spoke on the same side of the hub! The wheel was just laying on my back seat.

sounds like the whole wheel might need a retensioning
