    Help locating 2009 Mavic Ksyrium Elite spokes-Silver

    I need a couple spares of The Silver color and so far have only found dealers saying I must buy bags of 20 of each size. I am told these wheels take 2 different spokes lengths on rear (Drive and non drive spoke) and a third length on the front.
    Any suggestions where to buy only 2 or 3 of each size? The few LBS I have called that are dealers stock Black only , but not Silver.

    You know that Mavic is a company right? And like most, it has an address, phone number...and would you believe it - a website and email?

    It also has humans who can redirect inquires...seriously.

    Now the big question is, have you ever heard of Google?
