I could use a set of spokes to build up a Columbia model 59 wheelset (28 front; 36 rear). One of my current wheels is a mangled mess and both are missing spokes and they're too rusty to salvage.

I'm planning to build up Stutzman hoops and make it ridable so a solid set would be desired but new ones might even be preferred. Anybody know of a good option for this? I feel like I heard of a wheelman out there who made these. Or is straightening J-hooks the way to go?

Just looked them up and it seems their spokes are exclusively geared to 20" BMX. Looks like they max out around 200mm which is about 4 inches short. Am I missing something?

How about ProWheelbuilder.com? I found some SAPIM double butted in any length I could ever need. I was hoping to find cadmium plated so I could tarnish them some, but stainless is probably all I'll ever come up with.
