    Ibis 938 Spoke Length

    I thought Iíd see if anyone knows this offhand so I can place the order today. Ibis wonít answer the phone, the bike shop Ibis dealer doesnít know, and wants to see the wheel, and there is exactly zero information on Ibis website (or anyplace else from what Iíve found) on this simple question, thatís not so simple.

    Snapped a spoke on this morningís 5:45am ride, and trying to get a head start on getting the right spoke.

    Thx

    You might try reaching out to the folks at fanatikbike.com - they have the Ibis 938s on their website and specialize in wheels. Of course, not being a paying customer, you'd be relying on their good graces to help you out...

    If you have the broken parts, put them together and measure them. Or pull an adjacent spoke and measure it. Or lay a steel rule along an existing installed spoke, measure to the start of the nipple and add ~11mm.
    Do the math.

    Do you measure off the edge of the hub flange when doing this or do you measure down to the center of the spoke head?

    The drive side was 190, and non drive is a bit longer. My broken one was on the drive side.

    However I found that the rim has cracks coming from 5 of the spoke nipple holes. I ride hard, so this isnít surprising.

    Iíll be going to the wheel forum to seek opinions on a new wheel that will be a durability upgrade to these 938s.

    For J bend spokes you measure from the inside surface the bend. For straight pull spokes from inside surface of the head.
    Do the math.
