Last ride i had a rear spoke go on me but I’m not sure what length replacement I need. It’s on the rear of my DT XM1501 27.5″. I’m sure it’s a competition spoke I need but the length calculator is confusing my simple mind. Also there seems to be limited stock in some sizes.
What I have left of the spoke is about 290mm.
Some of the rim decals may have replacement spoke sizes on them in the small print. Normally I would just google for the manual for that wheel but helpfully, the DT Swiss site appears to be down for maintenance today.
I’ll be your night in shining armour as I had the same dilemma and the nice guys in TF Tuned gave me the correct info.
With regards spoke length the rear uses 284mm & 285mm Competition SP spokes and the front uses 285mm Competition SP. The 284mm is the rear drive side. TF Tuned can’t supply singly though. I paid through the nose for them from an Italian outfit. can’t remember who though but google will be your friend.
