hmmm feared that might be the case but it might still work just. At least I can remedy that with bigger nipples
Yeah it's not insurmountable, I used the spokes (and 12mm nips) I'd ordered, but it was harder than it needed to be to build, and even when fully tensioned there's still a couple of threads visible on some of the spokes. I wouldn't be happy building them for someone else, but for me they're fine. If they all break I'll just buy longer ones!
