  • It took me nearly 6 weeks earlier in the year to get a spoke for a fulcrum racing 3. And I googled the world and rang bike shops all through the uk and some in the US

    Everywhere that I tried was out of stock and the uk importer had none. In the end they scratted round and found one but I was very disappointed that there were no spokes in stock with the people who import them.They also said a delivery would take 4-6 weeks from Italy.

    I intend to sell the wheels and buy something that uses more available spokes.Mainly because of my disappointment from the importer.and the fact it could easily happen again and they didn't seem to think it was a big deal. Just need to find some spare cash.

  • Jim Walkers are the UK distributors for Fulcrum wheels so that would be my first port of call. They are the distributors, retailers and service centre for all things Fulcrum related...

    Let's close our eyes and see what happens

    They weren't particularly helpful when I called them, they just told me to call all the shops they supply to as listed on their website and maybe they could help me :twisted:

    I know JEJames have rear black spokes in stock as they ordered one in for me specially, I only needed 1 but they had to order a box of 20, I must admit they took ages to arrive but JEjames were great, the delays were with Fulcrum/jimwalker

  • Thanks to every one so far for replying.Still no joy after 5 weeks with a broken spoke!! The importer of Fulcrum -i ride/Jim Walker has about as much interest in getting me spokes as I have in watching paint dry!!! Why this is I don't know. This has now happened twice, first time was when I purchased a De Rosa frame set from them...
    Still awaiting a reply from the so called 'importer' and still no spoke???
    Any other suggestions would be great.
    Thanks again
  • To Jesse D
    How long ago did you order from JEJames as they may still have some??

  • I wouldnt PI S S on the MD of Jim Walker if they were on fire, not interested in helping individuals in the slightest. I will never buy fulcrum again

    a couple of months ago, I need to buy another one as I lost the 1st one i bought :?

    Give them a call and they should be able to tell you if they are in stock, they were pretty helpful when I dealt with them
