    On thursday my problems will be solved

    Since i built my front wheel in January it has been nothing but problems! First the people screwed up my order. I kept getting wrong guage spokes no matter who i ordered from. Well for a while my wheel has been a combination of different guages and different sizes. The spoc calc from DT told me 266, but im using washers so I like to go a little under so i went 265. It seemed then they were a bit too long, odd since their spoccalc has never failed me. Well since then ive made it a habit of ordering spokes 1mm short of what they say. So i decided i would look for spokes in 263mm.
    Well i was browsing Cambria bike and i found the same spokes i wanted in the first place for .35cents a piece!!! Thats 1.8/1.5/1.8mm Ritchey logic short butted spokes. WOw wow, so I ordered them and they included brass free of charge. Hopefully come thursday i will finally have a true wheel at last. Woo hoo

    Where did you order spokes from and get the wrong spokes?

    I get my spokes from my LBS, even if I order everything else online. If their spoke calculation is wrong, I just go trade the spokes in. I hate having to ship things back.

    IcyclesUSA. Which is odd, ive never had a problem with them before. my LBS can only order them in sort of large packs so if i want more than one size it means more packs and spokes sitting around. I dont like thatm so i want to be able to order them as individual

    I've never heard of this prob....

    I hate that you're having to suffer from others' "dumbass" mistakes Man.

    Find another LBS, if there is one....
