Nipples
« on: April 12, 2020, 06:56:23 PM »
Afternoon everyone, I’m using lockdown as a good excuse to give the bike a thorough service. I need to replace some of the nipples on my rear wheel as they’re rounded. The standard nipples are DT Swiss prolock squarx. Do I need to replace like for like or will non squarx dt Swiss prolock nipples be ok?

You just wanted to talk about nipples, didn’t you?

Use standard nipples but with the washers. Save the old washers from the Squorx nipples.

And use brass. Fuck aluminium.

Looking for the *suggest to moderator* option instead!

Good luck with your nipples Bren!
