I recently scored about 100lbs of new spokes. Chrome, stainless, zinc, and some colours (black, red, white, yellow.)

Most sizes, from 8" and up. Limited on spokes for 20"ers, unless they're 36 hole, 3-4 cross.

24"-29", I've got the spokes.

I can custom lace pretty much anything, but no weird snowflake disco patterns.

Prices start at $50 per wheel with new spokes, you provide the hub and rim.

Send me a PM for faster response.

Turnaround time is usually one week, two at the most.

Pic below is a 5 cross "race lace" with titanium spokes for 24" bmx cruiser I'm building.

Sorry I haven't gotten back to you. I'm not sure of the exact size. I think 11 1/2"? You can find a spoke calculator online and figure it out exactly. The other blunts I did I just kinda winged it with what I had.

I'm out of 15g spokes for 29'rs, and very low on 15g for 26's. Had to scrounge up some to build my 6bar's wheels.

I've got a ton of 14g in all sizes, but no nipples.

Also, I'm working full time, so finding time to build wheels is tough. But if anyone needs some, pm me and I'll see what I can do.

I'm low on spokes for 29'rs. I'll have to check my stock, but anyone can PM me with whatever sizes they need and i'll see what I can dig up.

Also, if anyone has all the parts, I can lace 'em up.

Work's been a little slow lately, so I have more time.

Anymore 29er spokes in?

Sorry, been really busy lately. Haven't checked. I do know I'm out of new stainless, but I might have some used chrome or zinc coated ones in good shape, if you're looking for a more vintage look.

I'll try to get into my stash in the next day of so and I'll let you know what I have.

Just an update. I'm out of 29'r spokes. And I'm working 6 days a week with no time to work on my own bikes.

Once work slows down again after summer, if anyone's interested, I'll buy spokes for 29'rs, or use yours, and build more wheels, but for now, I'm just to swamped.

If you absolutely need a wheelset and you have the spokes, pm me and I'll see if I can squeeze them out.
