Need your Nipples tweaked?! (spoke nipples that is) Bring your bike to me for a FREE wheel check.
This time of year doesn’t do your bike much good and your wheels are particularly susceptible to abuse. Keeping a wheel nice and true is a tricky business when the spokes and nipples start to seize and corrode. In some extreme cases a new wheel is required but often or not a good wheel just needs re-nippling or re-spoking. Aluminium nipples are particularly susceptible to corrosion and will often break or crumble making trueing impossible. A seized aluminium or brass nipple can also cause a spoke to snap as it is unable to move on its thread, causing stress and making your wheel perform badly.
Bring your bike into me for a free wheel check and I’ll advise on what you may require. Prices for re-nippling start at £40 inc brass nipples and for a wheel build using your existing rim and hub, with new plain gauge spokes prices start at £60.
