Hello,

when I wanted to rebuild my Giant wheels with different rims, I noticed the hubs use special straightpull spokes with a "T-head". Are these spokes availiable as ordinary spokes or oem only in certain lengths?

Thanks!

You can just buy them from most shops - same as DT Swiss straightpull spokes.

I don't think they are the same as regular DT Swiss straight pull spokes. From a distance, when viewed from the side, they look to be roughly the same shape, but when you view them up close, or from the end, you'll see the T-Head ones have 2 flat sides on the head, rather than the head being round like on a J-bend spoke.
