Lives under a bridge
Anybody know where I can get coloured spokes in country, preferably Melbourne? My LBSs are usless, as I only need half a dozen and they would t order for any less than 100.
Apparently my jokey, Simpsons esq title is uber confusing neighbourinos. :doh:We get them from kmart. I think it was $3 a pack. We're in Syd though... Just don't let the kids put them on your bike, at speed you hear nothing but on those long long grinding climbs all you can hear, is them ticking over, laughing at you....Gggrrrrr.
They hurt my butt just looking at them, I said something stupid not cruel....The other option is clip on spoke reflector tubes.
Cheap, Melb seller
Would they play nice with steelies? I need 260mmWould Ti fit the bill? I've got a fistful of ti spokes that were used from DT240's to 26" LB rims. Can't remember lengths off hand, but can check tonight. They've been 'pre-stressed', by the way, they aren't new.
I got some red anno ones from there, double butted, but not DTs, Sixpack I think the brand was. But don't really want to pay $20 shipping for $5 worth of spokes...I bought DT colored spokes from bike24 - red and white. Only way i could get double butted in the length i wanted in colours without going custom like Pillar. Then i discovered they are painted rather than anodized like the black ones. Maybe just paint them as well?
Pillar do heaps of colours either anodized or painted, but not sure about their ordering process. A few sellers on ebay are doing them though.
and here's a photo of my wheels, they were for my 24" bmx
