Hi all,

Hope someone can point me in the right direction.

I am starting to prepare for my first tour in a long time and as part of my tools and spares I am planning on carrying a few extra spokes with me. But where can I buy them and what length do I need? And do I need to buy nipples separately? My wheels are 700c x 32h and spokes are 15g, black with chrome nipples.

Thx

Shop around - you need to know the length which is measured from the threaded end to the elbow of the bend at the other end.

Don't forget -you will need to measure a front spoke and one from each side of the rear wheel.

are the existing spokes double butted?

No they are plain. I have searched round and have found several sources for 14g spokes, but none so far for 15g...
