Default Re: Spoke Size? (cranbrook)

Yeah, the shipping does suck. The first place I went to wanted $50 for a bag of 50 for a minimum order, and I had to wait a week for them to come in. I mean, it's the same price I paid in the end but WTF am I going to do with 50 spokes? At least I was able to buy just the 18 I needed and got them right there on the spot.

BTW: Lesson learned here is TORQUE THE REAR SPROCKET DOWN! I had mine torqued down at first and then started loosening bolts in order to balance it. By the time it was done the sprocket was actually loose enough that it would slip half an inch in either direction, smashing the bolts into the spokes where they passed through.
