  • Do spinergies come with extra spokes as spares?

    I bought a pair of LX's with my latest wheelchair. I had read somewhere the wheels came with extra spokes so you can replace them yourself if and when the need arose.
    Everybody wants freedom.... They just don't want it for everybody else...

    A college professor, a man I now consider my dad, once told me...
    "The minute you let someone decide what you can and cannot do, your life is no longer yours." A truer word has never been spoken in my opinion.

    I've never received any spare spokes with my LX's.

    Might be different if you buy them directly from Spinergy instead of OEM with a chair.

      They don't come with spares, but they're pretty cheap. I have blue XLX wheels on my current chair and swapped out the 6 interior spokes on each wheel with black ones I ordered separately.

        My Spinergy Spox wheels are 15 years old, never needed to change a spoke. Just adjusted them once so they all 'pinged' the same sound when I was bored once, but beyond that, totally trouble-free wheels

          I have a set about the same age and have been very impressed with the durability. When I first purchased wheels I also purchased extra spoke thinking I'd need it some where along the way... it's around somewhere in my parts piles but have not needed.
