Re: Just been ripped off...
Myke, honestly, its no problem at all. The supplier has actually just refunded us so i do believe it was an honest mistake, however it has taught me and hopefully many more a sharp lesson about PayPal's empty claims of 'protection'.
Re the wheel, I'm very surprised indeed your local bike shop don't have 12ga spokes! All imported American cruisers we have over here are sold on the fact the spokes are 12ga! Could be a misconception on my part that all american bikes had them as standard issue. I do remember coming across a few online sellers of 12ga spokes but annoyingly for me in the UK they they're all US based. If i can dig up some names i'll pass em on.
Anyways, happy MB'ing Myke and welcome to crazy gang!
