Spoke length on 2015 Mavic Crossmax SL?

Hey guys!

I just ordered a set of the new Crossmax wheels and the come with one yellow spoke on each wheel. I would like to change out the yellow to black or red to match the bike. I have found some listed on ebay but I do not know the length of the spokes. Does anyone know the length of the spokes on the 2015 Crossmax SL non-driveside in the rear and left/rotor side on the front?

Thanks

You did not tell us if it's 26, 29 or 650b.

Spoke calculators like the DT Swiss one (super accurate) or SpoCalc can tell you; but neither of those have your specific Mavic rim and hub preloaded in it, so you are going to need your hub and rim dimensions (ERD, center-to-flange, etc.) to run the numbers.

You can measure your own approximately by measuring the spoke from the seat of the spoke head to the nipple and adding 12mm for nipple length (NL) + about 6.5 nipple protrusion (NPr). This will give you a close approximate. OR you can remove one spoke, measure it and put it back and re-tension (that's probably what I would do) - - that will be 100% accurate.
