    What spokes?

    Search function down or I wouldn't bother you all...


    Phil high flange single track 32 hole
    velocity deep v

    I think I determined the length will be 280

    As for where to buy online.. yes nashbar I guess but is there anywhere that as a color selection perhaps?

    If you were building this combo, cash limit 50 bucks, what would you chose for spokes?

    Silver - Sapim Strongs ( http://www.sapim.be/index.php?st=pro...&detail=butted )

    Black DT Supercomp ( http://www.dtswiss.com/index.asp?fus...ikedetail&id=5 )

    But if the budget will stretch, go for Sapim CX-Rays.

    For looks (and strength) the Pillar Heavy Duty Aeros are great ( http://www.pillarspoke.com/product.a...Value=7&r=8429 )

    For colour (and if your budget will reeeeaaaalllly stretch) you could go for titanium Marwis ( http://www.marwiusa.com/default.aspx...&bbid=4&pid=61 ).

    Pillar also does a carbon spoke, which would make a pretty amazing looking wheel, but you might not be able to afford to eat for a few months while you pay them off. I know I couldn't afford them.

    Spokes bought here, http://icyclesusa.com/, are amazingly cheap and the service is great. I just ordered from them.

    wheelbuilder.com sells Sapim as well, their CS is outstanding.
    also biketoolsetc.com
    If you choose Sapim, price shop them - the pices vary quite a bit.

    I usually buy spokes from Odds and Endos. He has Wheelsmith double butted silver for $44.16 per 64 spokes, with nipples, and straight 14 ga. silver for $31.36 per 64, with nipples. Add $6.25 per order for shipping.
