Revolutionary Carbon Spoke Replacement

Two things we know are true: (1) You can't push toothpaste back into the tube once it's been squeezed out; and (2) you can't replace carbon spokes on commercially available wheels.

Not so fast on #2.

"Because of the way we hand-make our wheels, we can state with 100% accuracy that we can replace any and all spokes perfectly, every time," says Paul Lew, Founder of Lew Racing. "And the job is done flawlessly so that you won't be able to tell which spoke has been replaced."

After a broken spoke is completely removed technicians precisely insert a new Lew Racing NACA 0029 (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics) spoke into the rim using a technique from their DEX-LCM™ (patented process of combining carbon and boron) process. Like all of the spokes on the rim, the new spoke is seamlessly integrated from root-to-tip with the hand-crafted Lew rim. The final step involves a quality control check and then the wheel is shipped back the customer. This entire process takes only a few business days.

The spokes (only 3 grams each) are five times stiffer than their steel competitors with three times the compression strength and double the tensile strength. Plus, the spokes maintain their shape at the very critical rim/spoke interface (unlike steel spokes which loose their blade shape) and boast unrivaled cross-wind handling. The result is a super low-aerodynamic drag system that behaves like a bladed steel spoked wheel at a fraction of the weight.

In addition, the NACA 0029 spokes create zero residual stress via a unique Quad-drive™ rear wheel technology which gives the rider maximum torque with no flex when power is applied. And as if that's not enough, the wheels never need adjusting and stay true for the life of the wheel.

A recent post by MJC to the Lew Racing forum (lewracing.com) reveals one customer's experience with Lew Racing's spoke replacement. "I noticed the broken spoke on Monday, got the wheels to LEW in Las Vegas on Wednesday evening & they had them shipped back on Thursday & I received them Friday morning. That's a 24 hour turnover. Lee (Vaccaro) over at LEW has been nothing short of amazing. He gets it. He knows he has the best wheel out there, but he doesn't stop there. His customer service is as good as his wheels. He understands that if you charge a premium, you better give more than just wheels."
