    Hi Folks

    What spokes would you use and why? I have some carbon rims and they’re 30mm total width 27.5 “, 32h 3 cross lacing.

    Thanks.

    Cx-ray for me, sapim d-light for my mate.

    Why? Why not? Never tried them before.

    Whichever you’d use for alu. I think one of my pairs is Lasers (unsquished CXRays) and the other is Comp Races.

    Also.. Depending on the dimensions of the rim, if it’s deeper, get a spoke that’s easily available.. I got my carbon rim respoked on dt Swiss after snapping a couple of pillar aeros.. So if you have a similar breakage, better you can get a few new spokes rather than relace the whole wheel. The spokes mine came with were hard to get hold of and a bit pricey so I got the guy to just re spoke the whole wheel as I didn’t fancy waiting weeks for replacements.
