LBS told me today that spokes are getting harder to get. To relace a wheel they charge 25 bucks per wheel which is normal but 4 dollars a spoke. Evidently they think this is the new lumber inflation.
Super simple solution, send it to Dave at SpeedDream. ~$125 for the build including spokes and he will have it done in a few days. His attention to detail is insane and I have abused multiple sets of wheels from him for several years and they are all still straight and tensioned perfectly. I am not easy on parts either.

If they're bladed spokes, probably about right. Straight guage, $4 is way high. But like others have mentioned, $25 is way cheap for a build, so you'll come out a wash even paying extra for the spokes.

I just paid $2/spoke at a local shop and I thought that was a bit steep.
