Why is finding a replacement spoke and rims for my 2010 Triumph Bonneville T100 so difficult? The lady a Buchanan's was absolutely no help whatsoever. Apparently the hub on a 2009 is different then a 2010 yet the wheel sizes are the same?

Does anyone have any suggestion on where and how I can find a reasonably priced aftermarket rim (used or new) to fit my bonne without any major modification?

Have the rims changed with the new hubs? I thought--but don't know--that the rims are the same as they have been all along.

I'll have to check those out thanks.

Buchanan Spoke has pre package kits for 2009 and earlier. I checked on Bikebandit and the hub assembly part number is the same on a 2009 and the 2010. Why would they tell me that the hub is different? I feel like I need wheel education 101 here.

If by pain in the arse you mean expensive, I'd have to agree with you. Would love to get some Alum rims from Buchanan myself, just haven't won the big lottery yet. Maybe one of these days... :rolleyes:

You have straight spokes, right? No angle at the end where it goes into the hub? That would be the "new" hub. I think that it changed in 2009, so that might be the reason for the confusion.

I believe that the rim is the same, and you could verify that on Bike Bandit by comparing the rim for your bike with, for example, the rim for a 2007.

If I were you, I'd contact Buchanan's directly with your situation and ask what they recommend. It could well be that the web site simply hasn't been updated.
