    I want to rebuild some wheels. Just wondered if any one had a link? To custom spokes...

    Hi Goat Herder,

    I've been on the same quest for custom length 12, 11, or 10 GA. spokes for months.

    From what I have been able to learn: And this is certainly not complete, (maybe someone else will chime in).

    1) Some bicycle shops have a simple little hand operated machine that will clip and thread roll 14 & 16GA. spokes to any length you need.

    2) Custom MC shops have the same set-up...but they don't do the small stuff!

    3) The 12 & 11 GA. spokes are impossible to find in custom lengths.

    Your right about the roller Gizmo . I talked to a local bike shop that tool seams to be about 2,000 dollars. So they said nobody here has the tool for it. The only shop that did broke there's. I thought I found a link to spokes on line once from Hong Kong or something like that.

    Thanks for the link Bairdco. Anybody finds more please post them.
