    Help me order spokes

    I want to replace the spokes on my '76 Superior with new stainless spokes. I know nothing about the type and particular spokes I need. All I know is there are 36 on each wheel. What should I order?

    Take one off. Look at each end. Measure it. CALL the spoke guy. He'll walk you through it.

    I've re-laced a wheel by taking good pics of the pattern, marking as I went. I laced everything snug and LBS tightened and trued for $8/wheel.

    I've been using DT Swiss 2.0/1.8 double butted spokes. The sizes I like for my S/Ts & S/Ss with weinmann rims and normandy & normandy luxe(schwinn approved) high flange hubs has been 296mm for the front and rear non-drive side and 294mm for the rear drive side.

    You should use a spoke calc to make sure.
