Does anyone know where I can get some good quality spokes for a Crystalyte 408 hub motor set in a 26" wheel.

Are they a standard size ?

i'm looking for some heavy duty ones because its a real pain in the arse having to disconnect everything and respoke the wheel.

thanks in advance.

Re: Good Quality Spokes

for anyone who has any broken spokes its a good idea to replace them asap..
if you cant find the right size. a good temporary fix is to pull a spoke out and go down to your local recycling centre.. many of them will have lots and lots of junk bicycle parts.. just walk around till you find a wheel that matches your spoke size and then take it..

I got a whole wheel of spokes for $1... they arent as thick as my 408 spokes but they should be ok to hold my bike together till my dealer can supply a fresh set..

cheers,
