the new soon to be available Hope Pro3 hubs use straight pull spokes on thier website they talk about using DT Swiss Triple Butted Super Comp spokes - so I'd talk to a DT supplier (although I can't see straight spoke the DT website.. :? )

Not sure - I know the Mavic road wheels (all or some?) use Aluminium spokes (not a good idea IMHO) and these are special order from mavic dealers - a lot of the new light weight wheels are lke this (and why I want the DT RR1450 in white 8) )

a bloke at work had to send his cross max (i think) back to the shop to get ti fixed when he broke a spoke, but then he's quite random when it comes to bikes :lol:
