Right then, decided to take the plunge and build myself some new wheels. I'm pretty confident truing now so i'm not worried about lacing, dishing etc. I'll be ccopying the current pattern and have a fall back in one of Sheldon Brown's sites if it all goes wrong.
The build will be Mavic XM819 on Pro II hubs. My current set up is the tubed version (XM719 on same hubs) so i'll be building side by side and copying spoke pattern etc.
My only question is this - having never run UST rims before, i'm not familiar with the spoke/spoke nipple set up. Can I, for example take the regular spokes out of the current set up and put them on the UST rim? What about spoke nipples...are these specialist for a UST rim?
Advice/directions to a relevant website would be greatly appreciated.
