    I am after some shorter DB spokes for a 20" wheel build for a recumbent. Anyone know of a suitable supplier as most spokes I've come across in search don't go short enough?

    very helpful ,

    We tend to use standard stainless spokes for our 20" wheel builds.

    I doubt you'll find double butted in that length.
    Nevertheless, what is your required length?
    The shortest DB blanks I know of can only cut down to 245mm or so.
    Your application is a clear exception for straight gauge.

    That was a bit easier, searching for plain gauge. Right ordered the spokes I need for my build.

    You could try ICE trikes, they cut their own spokes and they use double butted on the VTX.
