If you ordered one from Coventry I would stick with them. I tried going around them for a lower link several years ago and I still had to wait months. They got them the same time I did. Kemp is always worth a try because many of their sources differ from the Club.

Just checked on the VOC spares company web site and FF3 is listed as in stock at £298 excluding VAT. As you are outside Europe you would not have to pay the vat (tax).

Coventry tells me they get them from the club (or maybe it was the club source) and they've been on order months. So I presumed they don't have them either. I ordered SS spokes from the Club and waited several months. So I know not everything they list is held.

Coventry uses quite a few suppliers, but you are correct, they get the forged steel link from the Spares Co. It is for this reason I am not sure you can find another source, so I would stick with Coventry.

Coventry used to supply Buchanan's spokes. If you want stock sizes quickly they may have them on the shelf. If you want something custom, like spoke or nipple sizing I would go to Buchanan directly. If you are lacing an existing rim I would always ask what size nipples are supplied because the rims may be drilled for a different size.
