A couple of questions

Hey guys!

The past few days I was wondering...

How much should my shop charge max for a relacing of spokes? (Because I might get a new hub and pair of rhyno lites)
How much will they charge for spokes?
Can 20mm axles fit in a traditional drop out on a fork?
Can the smaller axles (I think 9mm) fit in a Qr20 drop out?

a) - not sure what you mean. If you are buying new hub and rim it isn't worth it to bring over the spokes as they may not fit and they have already been stressed
b) not sure. Check bikeroom.
c) no (there are some you can change the axle but they are rare)
d) No (there are some you can change the axle but they are rare)

a) Probably only will work if the rim is the same
b) Regular spokes are about $1 each here but it depends what you get
c) What Mael Said
d) " " "

Also, do most rims use presta valves? I've seen a lot of rims having that as their tube valve hole.
