I could be talked into parting with some Sapim polyax black brass if you hit me back later. SJS Cycles have them in 100 bags for good prices and postage.That wasn't a curse! That was achieved through incompetence alone. And we all know the true Zelvy curse is that of ownership.
(on the phone, so replying from memory as to what's been said).
Little but angry (pic related).
Cheers Oddjob, but I think I might as well go brass now that the I'm here.
I don't drink, I usually just get over invested and combative on the internet.
The punched kitten achieved low earth orbit.
You have expensive tastes. It would be cheaper and quicker to get the Cyclus nipple driver and use a ratchet drive. https://www.bike24.com/p2242915.htmlHey guys!!
Good moment of brotherly love from the site, everyone wants me to have their nipples!!
Just a heads up, I did all the spoke calculations on the assumption I'd be using the Squorx nipples, which have a longer thread engagement on them. Not necessarily a problem, there's only millimeter or two in it, and they would just extent out the top of the spoke a little. I also just prefer to use the squorx tool for building, there's a solid connection and far less fiddly.
I'm waiting to see if MTBDirect can fix this with DT Swiss and get me what I need. If I have to go normal nipples, I'll likely buy them locally just to get it done.
Fair enough.33mm internal front, 26mm rear.
I also run different spokes front and rear, because a front wheel has a different purpose to a rear.
Kind of like how we have different tread patterns for the tyre, they don't need to match because they do different things; I'd even go so far as to say that a wheelset SHOULDN'T match because of this, and have put money into my belief of that.
How are you finding the Vivid. About to get mine back from the suspension tech and fit it to the Pole.I haven't had the Storia on the bike for a little bit (been messing about with the Vivid Air and Coil). Pretty sure the Storia damper works via a spool valve, not sure if there's a poppet in the sequence though. I've never heard a click or clunk on mine, but in discussions with the guys from NSD previously, they had a guy who could hear his making such a noise and, even though it's a normal part of operation, really disliked it.
The only thing I've really heard from the Storia is more of a "squeak" as the oil cycles through the circuits, but it's clearly a damper noise and one of those really cool "phhhhsssshhhhh" noises, just higher pitched.
