Spoke Set - Francis Barnett (All Models)
At Central Wheel Components we have been filing spoke lengths & drill patterns for over 120 years; and make our spokes in house, to order. Please note that spokes supplied are not replicas. Some spokes may vary in length of bend or angle from original. When assembled and tensioned these spokes will bed and sit correctly in the hub.
Here at CWC we manufacture our own brand of CWC Spokes & Nipples. These are available in various materials and gauges, and can be supplied in any quantity from 10 spokes for replacements / spares; to 100,000+ for original equipment or replacement wheel suppliers.
The Spokes Available here are:
Has long been the traditional material for spokes, but today stainless steel is far more popular and gives a better, longer lasting finish.
Galvanised Spoke Sets are recommended with Zinc-plated steel nipples.
Polished Stainless Steel:
Gives the spokes a chrome-like appearacnce, but without the same level of maintenance.
Stainles Spoke Sets are recommended with Nickel-plated Brass Nipples.
Butted Stainless Steel:
Thicker gauge at one end for extra strength & durability where needed.
Please be aware that similar materials can seize together over time, so if you would advice on matericals please contact us. It should also be remembered that stainless steel will not bend to the same degree as galvanised steel.
