I am thinking about the inevitable replacement of the spokes in these lower spoke count wheels. I would like to be able to go up a size or two on some of the spokes (drive side on the Protons, all of them on the spindly Shamal spokeset).

Has anyone had experience replacing these/sourcing these? I am paticularly worried about the Shamal which is a rear wheel and only has 12 or 16 spokes (can't recall). It is on my wife's bike, so it won't be thrashed, but I would be more comfortable with more spokage. It probably isn't the most appropriate wheel for her, but Nashbar was just blowing these out for literally $79 bucks, so I impulsively got one.

All help on the spoke info is greatly appreciated...
