Announcing spokes for retail


Since launch I’ve focused on being a service provider. I’ve been supplying really nice products but only for sale in conjunction with services. The odd exception has been spokes. Folks from across Canada and even out of province shops have contacted me to source a spoke or two. It’s hard to say no to small requests when people have tried several avenues before reaching out to you.

Lately I’ve been chatting up shops to understand modern spoke availability. I got the message high volume shops aren’t building wheels as often and spoke supply is collateral damage (which, in turn, makes me worry about the state of wheelbuilding skills). Compared to other shop services, wheelbuilding is low margin so none of this is surprising.

Therefore I’m announcing spokes for retail sale in any quantity because it’s important for the community. It doesn’t matter if you’re a home mechanic or a bike shop. At the moment I have straight gauge, butted and light butted spokes in stock in all lengths, silver and black. Aero spokes require extra lead time. See my spokes page for pricing. Shipping on spokes is a flat rate of $5 for any quantity of spokes shipped anywhere in Canada. Add GST but not PST/HST.
