- db spokes or not?
My local master wheelbuilder (I’ve heard great things of him) is building me a new rear wheel on my old pro2 hub.
I asked about spokes and he uses pg stainless. Should I pay the extra for some dt swiss competition spokes? Its for my ht. ArcH ex rim. I want them strong but lightish (I know the arch is a little heavy, but heard the crest was thin and old xc200 were dented to death).
Pricing them up its another £24…worth the weight saving and strength?

or £9 for 18,
Rose are very cheap on spokes, but the carriage levels out the price with CRC near enough. great if you are buying lots of stuff.clubberMember

Good spokes too – never had an issue with them.Posted 5 years agojamesMember
“ArcH ex rim”
For me I was deliberating double butted Sapims(2.0-1.8-2.0) or triple butted DT SuperComps (2.0-1.7-1.8) on these rims.
If you can I’d price up Sapim double butted (I think they’re the ‘Race’ model) as more so in silver they’re much cheaper than DT Comps.

+1. You’re paying all the extra for the ZTR rim, to scrimp on spokes?
