Spoke Protector options for R561 with HG50 12-25T

edited September 2007 in MTB workshop & tech

I decided to replace my rear wheel on my Racer (Scott AFD Elite) as the Rim wear indicator groove was totally gone and had been so for the last 500mile, decided I'd rode my luck too long. I purchased.........

Shimano R561 Rear 2007 700c 20h Black Clincher
Shimano Tiagra 9 Cassette 12-25

Just as I went to finish assembly I realised I had no spoke protector to fit, none supplied with wheel or cassette. Strickly speaking I know I don't need one but would prefer to fit to gurantee my spokes are safe from that chain and rear derailleur :wink:

I see there are a few options from Shimano regarding spoke protectors i.e. ...... ... s-6899.htm ... s-6898.htm ... id=Frogoog
can anyone advise which of these would be suitable or any non Shimano options ?

Can anyone advise what my options are?
