Anyone know where I can get some replacement spokes for a Shimano Dura-Ace C24 CL Clincher 7900 Front wheel. They are a 282mm Straight Pull bladed spoke. Have placed 3 orders on different websites only to be sent a cancellation email a few days later due to them being out of stock and no confirmed re-supply date from wholesaler.

Shimano don't seem to have a customer support email and I've tried searching for similar spokes from other manufactures but am coming up blank. Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

    I rest my case M' lod.

    OP - sorry I can not help, other than how about trying the UK importer (I know you are in Ireland) Madison?
    Yellow is the new Black.
  • Thanks for the suggestion

    I'm not sure what the first part of the message is for as I haven't been reading all posts in the forum - I do hope it's not related to the fact that I didn't buy a steel framed, single speed with hand built 36 spoke wheels to cycle around in miles per hour.

    Madison have these, use their website to find your nearest distributor. Have ordered some recent spoke replacements for these wheels from Madison without issue.

  • That's sweet JSCL, fired off an email just to confirm - Thanks.

    Failing that the German websites like Rosebike and Bike Discount carry a lot of Shimano spares. Might be worth a look.

    Starbike in Germany have straight pull spokes... you can get CX ray straight pull of the length required... gonna be expensive with delivery etc, but better than nothing. WIll the nipple fit in the DA hole? Shimano use different nipples.

    Long story.

    Suffice to say that the fact you need spokes on such a wheel is no surprise and neither is the apparent difficulty in obtaining them.

    Just wait till you find out the cost. How fcuking much for a spoke!!!!

    Anyway - hope you get sorted via Madison.
    Yellow is the new Black.
  • @smidsy - The spokes got damaged in a race sprint collision, where another riders front skewer ran through the spokes like the cliche scene of a tin cup running along prison bars, no breaks but all slightly bent on one side from contact with the skewer, so don't want to take a chance on having them break at speed.

    I'm not sure why expensive spokes would be a surprise on a €400 wheel.

    Different spokes for different folks I guess.

  • Just to confirm, Madison do keep these spokes however they are out of stock until 1/10/2013 so you may be in for a bit of a wait.

    You could try google-ing Y012AF827 and see if anyone has them in stock.
  • Cheers @TheRealGuyBrush, have another wheel that isn't so bad, so should tide me over until then.

    Swinnerton cycles say they have spoke sets for 7900 c24's maybe singles as well?
    but perhaps you ve tried them.
