I've had 2 sets of Crossmax wheels (one 26, one 29) with the oversized alu spokes. Put a lot of miles on both, and only had to replace one spoke, due to a stick through the wheel that would have taken out 3-4 standard spokes. Had no trouble finding a replacement at an lbs that does a lot of Mavic business. They may be expensive, but they last.slcrockymountainrider said:An simple internet search of 'Mavic Crossmax ST 29er spokes' yielded: http://www.bikebling.com/Mavic-Cros...nt-Spokes-p/mavic08-crossmax-stc29-spokes.htm
$5.00 each. Have fun bending over for that.
That Google thingy still amazes me .
