Have just had similar problem and had existing wheel re-built by central wheel components, with new black anodised rim, new stainless steel spokes and existing hub blasted & re-powder coated for (gulp) £260 with additional £70 for Avon distansia + new rim tape + new Dunlop inner tube. Stunning job only it took 8 weeks rather than advised 4 weeks as original anodised rim supplied was not up to spec (discovered and rectified by them, before getting back to me ) . Despite wait & lack of communication at time, am over moon with result. Have been offered free spokes for front wheel rebuild as compensation. Would recommend but don't send at start of summer expecting to get some summer riding by its return. Will post before and afters photos when I figure out how to !
