So, the bonty race 29er wheels I have on my commuter/audax/road hack/CX bike have stupid ally nipples, which have all cracked and crumbled away like cheese from a combination of road salt and heavy loads. Plus the spare brass nipples I have stockpiled are too long.
Plus I want to do Exmouth Exodus (and back) this weekend coming, so what off-the-peg or prompt custom build wheels should I get?
I've been thinking of some 'nice' wheels to do audaxes etc on, then I can leave the CX rubber and ice spikes on the others when I get round to chopping all the nipples out and renippling them (a LONG job!).
I was thinking maybe Hope ProIII hubs and open pros? I run 32c rubber at the mo, but I'd be nice to be able to run 23c slicks and say 28cs on them.
Any ideas? Have to be disc compatible, as I run BB7's.
