I need spokes

Where can I get spokes?

1. Chrome or stainless only
2. Long BMX style nipples. No shorty DT style

I went to my LBS and he said $25...plus $14 shipping. No way am I doing that.
Looked on Ebay and a few other places. You have to buy packs of 50 and most have shorty nipples. Who builds 50 spoke wheels?

www.danscomp.com
www.albes.com
www.staff-bmx.com
www.empirebmx.com

All of those sites have spokes. Spokes normally come in packages of 50; there are enough spokes to build up a wheel and to have extra left over in case any break.

Something tells me those spokes would just implode.

Thanks for the links. I'm restoring an '81? (I think) Mongoose and need a few parts.
