    Hi Guys,

    Havings lots of breaking back wheel problems at the minute... !!! arghhh!!

    I have tried everywhere but cannot get any new spokes for a Campagnolo Shamal rear wheel. It i the lastest version of the shamal before it was discontinued. Doers anyone have any spares or know where to get some? After having checked all of england im moving onto holland now... !!

    To top this off, have been racing on my training wheels.. Gipieme quattro's... obviously not designed for that and i think ive bent the axel!!.. going to see if i can get that sorted out today....

    well.. at least its payday... have a feeling i may need it!!!

    take it easy guys

    Bad luck, I have always heard Shamals are bullet proof, but maybe they came up against an IED.

    Can't help you, just offer condolences... I pulled a spoke through the rim on my Cosmic Carbones recently which put me in a similar situation, so I can sympathize with your pain.

    I've gotten all of my odd campy spokes from www.branfordbike.com. I also discovered that the aero spokes from DT are a nice, and cheaper alternative for Shamals.
