I have always used DT competition double butted spokes and have never ever had a problem with them at all. So I'm wondering whether I could in fact be using the lighter DT Revolution spokes instead.
I ride fairly typical XC stuff mainly, although I do like to ride rocky red routes at trail centers and get my wheels off the ground occasionally...
Anyone using them for similar purposes? Got any horror stories about them?
I'm actually planning to build a new rear wheel with a Shimano Alfine hub and I'm wondering if I could use the Revolutions for this wheel to save a little weight.
My thinking is that as the wheel will be almost dish-less and have shorter spokes than a normal hub it should be just as strong as my regular wheels even with lighter/weaker spokes.
Anyone got any thoughts on this?
