Long/Custom spokes in Dublin

    Hello all.
    I just moved here for school from Los Angeles and unfortunately I've already broken a few spokes on my rear wheel. They're just standard old 27" wheels but the spokes seem to be unusually long (around 306mm x 2mm). I've tried several bike stores in my area (Rathmines) and none have any longer than 300mm.
    My question is if anyone knows of a shop in the greater Dublin area that is likely to have a larger selection of spoke sizes or can cut and thread their own spoke blanks.
    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Try euro cycles in town, south Frederick street. Cliff is usually pretty good at getting spokes in... Could take a while tho

    You might also try rothar near phibsboro, www.rothar.ie, as they usually have scrap wheels in that size. John

    I've got longer than standard spokes before in Cyclogical on the quays, I was told by another bike shop at the time that Cyclogical can thread and cut them to size but they were able to source the ones I needed from a box behind the counter. They just had them in black at the time but that didn't bother me.
