- Oh dear… No such thing as a 2.0 x 10mm nipple?
Just building up a new/old wheel with a new rim and old spokes… I knew the ERD didn’t quite match but figured that if it doesn’t go, I could always just go to 10mm spokes. Early findings are that I have ****ed up completely. Can anyone tell me I’m OK and actually shop X has a pile of 10mm nipples I can buy? Or am I just kind of boned?

Spoke nipples come in 12, 14 & 16mm lengths and there are 1 or 2 companies that make 18mm but I have never seen or heard of 10mm ones.
You can normally run about 3mm through the top of a 12mm nipple with no problems, any more than that and they normally just lock up on the unthreaded part of the spoke.Posted 4 years ago
