I heard that you can't reuse spokes, you have to take a new spoke, paint it, then lace it into the wheel.Originally posted by 64@Dec 6 2003, 07:15 PM

If you completely take apart a rim, I would recommend taking it to a bike shop and having them put it back together. Unless you have done it before and are good at it. I dont know how much they charge but I think it wuld be worth it. If you are painting or powdercoating you spokes dont forget to do the head or the part that goes on the axle. It adds good detail to your rims.
Thats what I was thiking about doing :cheesy:Originally posted by tonedeaf@Dec 7 2003, 01:36 AM
also just do one or two spokes at a time. remove it, paint it, and put it back on. one of my homies did it this way and the rims is still str8. he rides it almost everyday
