Spokes - Whats a fair price ?
#1
Well im looking at having my rear wheel rebuilt and phoned around, most places want to charge £1 a spoke  :o so £32 plus labour of around £25-30 Surely that isnt right ?

Tibbs cycles are pretty good - 63p per spoke for DT Swiss double butted and about a tenner for building. If you give them a call, ask to speak to chris.

Whats this guy like as I have some spokes that need replacing.  I was going to use Harry Rowland however Canterbury is a lot easier for me to get to and back then Ramsgate.
