Default What length spokes to repair this wheel ?

I have this wheel with 12 gauge spokes https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

9 of the spokes broke so I need to get new ones . How do you know the proper length to replace them with ?

Whenever I broke spokes on a Roadmaster lightwt bike some 50+ years ago, I'd remove spoke and take to local bike shop. Take the entire spoke, the nipple end and the remainder of spoke through hub. OR contact the person who sold rim, and they may be able to tell you. Once you know, you'll know what to order online the next time you have a "spoke virus". 9 spokes at once?

I have to concur with ragdolldude... Take out a unbroken spoke & take it to a local bicycle shop!!
They'll not only tell you what size it is, but they'll also provide the replacements!

Shops may not have stocked 12 gage spokes, but they could likely order them. OR, you may want to try some other shops that are in another city near you.

Spoke measurements are taken right under the 90 bend to the end of the threads. Pretty simple. If you need a visual, google "how to measure a spoke."

Don't take this as fact, but I bet they're 10 5/8".
