Had a massive blow out this morning and caused the chain to jump jamming the bike up, snapping three of my lovely Capangnolo Shamel bladed spokes.
Does anyone know where I can get replacements? Spoke to Condor and they said they have to order them from Italy. Wouldn't mind something a bit quicker, any suggestions?
Sapim CX-Ray spokes would do the job, or yes you need the Campagnolo ones.
Give Cycle Fit a call, explain the problem and see what they can do:
I've contacted so many shops about this, unfortunately due to the age of the wheels (pre 99) no-one has spokes. What to do? How can I find out what size spokes fit this wheelset? AAHHH.
I think the spokes for the Shamals might be proprietary ie you need to get replacements from Campag. Try calling Mercian as they stock loads of Campag spares. 01332 752468. They'll be able to confirm whether the spokes are a proprietary size.
You might have a problem - a friend has been trying to source some spokes for a 2002 Eurus wheel and even Campy have stopped stocking them for this model year... At least you'll know for sure what the situ is if ya call Mercian.
Thanks for that. I called Mercian this morning and they need to know the year of the wheel. Ive got no idea...
Looks like I will need to send them the wheel. I'm starting to think just to sell the front Shamal and the rear hub, and buy some Deep V Velocity. Bugger...
Sorted. Condor have managed to find the right spokes hidden away in their workshop. Not too sure how much that has cost (prob a small fortune) but its done. Thanks for the help guys.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
