Default Re: Spoke Size? (cranbrook)

if your using the same hub and rim , you already know what you need .
just take out a good spoke ( measure it , or take it to the store and get the same )

most bikes come with 14 gauge spokes

the thicker 11 or 12 gauge spokes definately look sweet , BUT , unless you find good quality stainless ones somewere , just go with good quality stainless 14 guage spokes .

most of the thicker gauge spokes are made out of plain chromed steel and have lower tensile strenght than the good quality 14 guage spokes

i,m sure some people on the site here can direct you as to were to get good 11-12 guage spokes . but if your gonna do it ( buy good quality spokes ) don,t spring for the cheap ones ( there is a reason they are cheap )
