Where to get Mavic Spokes for Ksyrium Elite?

Postby GreyhoundCycle » Mon Aug 12, 2013 10:46 pm

Looking for some Mavic Ksyrium Elite 2010 spokes in black.. for front wheel and perhaps some rear as spare parts.

Does anyone know where I can get them as I had difficulties finding any....

Any help would be appreciated.

Won't work, ES/SL & Elite use completely different spokes.

Any shop that deals with Mavic should either have them or be able to get them easily enough.
I had a thought, but it got run over as it crossed my mind.

Resurrecting a thread... I am trying to find MAVIC spokes now for an older Ksyrium wheel but I also have had trouble in the past for my Crossmax wheels. I am presuming this is planned obsolescence by Mavic as practically every model has different spokes. There is no bike shop here and looking online I have not had any luck with the length I want. Seems parts are rare?? Pictured is my current fix. Not sure how long it will last.
Plus tensioning these blade sopkes it is really hard with the tool I have to stop spokes twisting. What do other people do?

Some slight working on the spoke end, filed round, then 3mm thread on spoke end and finely drilled out nipple with 3mm thread.

The head of the nipple needed a very slight shaping to fit the hub.
