Advice on buying spokes for 2010 Felt B16

I recently got a used 2010 Felt B16 in excellent condition, and after several rides I ended up with a broken spoke. The only info I could find from Felt was about the widths of the double butted, bladed spoke. I could not find any info on length or brand.

I loosened and measured a nearby spoke and got 285mm. The wheelset is the Felt TTR4 set.

Is this enough info to order new (non-matching) spokes to replace, or should I just go to the bike shop and ask them?

This is where a LBS is best. They will most likely have a spoke in stock and you won't have to order it, wait for it and pay shipping on it.

I'm going to disagree with the other poster. I'm thinking you are going to have to be lucky to find a LBS with that particular bladed spoke in stock. Try Wheelbuilder.com but the shipping will probably cost more than the spoke.

Measure it yourself as you have done. If you want to find out who makes it, look at the spoke head ID chart. Manufactures stamp their symbol on them.

yea the 'In stock' part is presumptuous, go to the bike shop, your friendly local..

[where you bought the *Felt?]

tell them exactly what you need and they will source the spokes
from their distributors ,

in their next order and hand them to you , over the counter in a week, or so,
this time of year.. same 'no shipping' charges, to you..

Winter, less frequent because demand falls, so order frequency is less..

My Local sells *Felt , & Trek..

For Touring riders a couple spokes get threaded and cut to length on the spot.
