226mm Double Butted Spokes....source?
Quote | Reply
I'm building a wheelset with rims from light-bicycle.com. 467mm ERD. The literature that came with the rims says straight gauge spokes are too stiff and will void the warranty.

I can find double butted spokes for the front (DT Swiss Aerolite). No problem.

So far I can't find anything for the rear. For the majority of hubs that I consider (haven't decided on the rear hub yet) I need a length of ~226mm. All I can find in that range are single butted straight gauge spokes.

Anyone know of a solution? These are the 88mm clinchers, so if you've built a rear wheel with them I'd like to know what hub/spoke you used.

Well, shit. As soon as I posted this I found 226mm options at bikehubstore.com. I was looking through our distributors at QBP/BTI/J&B and didn't see anything. Guess I'm paying retail.

Look on the bright side, with bikehubstore.com you only have to buy as many as you'll actually need. They won't make you buy a whole box.

And their prices are really good.

Price difference of $65. And there's a good chance they'll be covered with a disc cover anyway.

If you own a bike shop, you can buy them from KHS Bicycle Parts at wholesale.
