    My current wheelset are Hope Pro 2 with DTswiss 5.1D rims. A few of the nipples have rounded off so need replacing and whilst fiddling about getting a spoke out ive bent that. One of the rims has a ding in it.

    I’ve got a spare set of Hope Pro2 on Dtswiss E540 rims…..do I use these and rebuild my old wheels with a new rims?? Or just fix the offending few nipples and bang a couple of spokes in.

    I have no experience, will i die?

    I’ve read brass nipples are the way forward?

    Has the ding caused a buckle?
    If not then I would just replace spokes.

    If its buckled then for me its new rim time – you can sometimes get them straight but not without unbalancing your wheel and they usually just get worse.

    Set aside a day and follow Sheldon Browns instructions on wheel truing/building

    and yes – brass nipples are what you need

    You can sometimes remove a ding with an adjustable spanner
