I need to buy a replacement for a broken spoke.
Does anyone know of a US vendor for Pillar spokes?
The spokes are Xtra 1420 for a Dt Swiss 350 hub.

Thanks in advance😁

You won't find Xtra 1420 in the U.S. The closest spoke is the Xtra 1422 or Wing 1420. See the attached links. Or just use an equivalent spoke from Sapim or DT Swiss.

Just use a CX Ray. Check out my table for comparisons:

Not really an answer, but you could email LightBicycle to see if a replacement could be sourceed from the US wharehouse.

Thanks everyone for the responses.
I didn't realize Light Bicycle was pretty much the only source. If I can't get them from their NA warehouse, I'll look into an equivilant form the supplied chart.

Thanks again! :beerchug:

Through CSC on ali express is easy and fast.

Pillar 1420 are a cheaper equivalent of CX-Ray or Aerolite, BUT I've had many more of them break so I consider their quality and strength lower. I no longer use them. I used to get them from Light Bicycle.
