I need new wheels desprately. i have a set but whoever built them built them all wrong with the wrong materials, therefore my rim is messed up do to the lack of support from the spokes. Either way, these wheels are top priority. While i cant afford all of the spokes now i was wondering igf theyd be a worthwile upgrade. Any ideas?

I ran ti spokes for years when I was pegless and riding shows, I dont think I could do it now... or pay for them

Very expensive with not a huge loss in weight

I would ride ti spokes if i got them for free but if i had to pay for them i wouldn't because they are too expensive

I would take the strength advantage of a DT swiss over the fraction of weight savings with triple butted...

aren't the triple butted spokes really double butted, just thinner then a normal double butted in the butted part? A truely triple butted spoke would go thin, then thick, then back to thin, then back to normal.

Let me rephrase that, " I heard you could kick in Ti spokes without a lot of effort because I heard they were brittle" .. Want a cookie tough guy?

Triple butted spokes are truly better than a staight gauge spoke. While they don't save weight, they add strength. The thickest section at the hub flange fully fills the spoke hole in the hub. That decreases the movement of the spokes in the hub, which lengthens the life of the spoke. The thinnest section provides increased elasticity, which allows the wheel to move further and bounce back without breaking.

Pretty sure they're 13g at the head, 15g in the middle, and 14g at the ends to use normal nipples.

To the OP, any kind of 14g straight gauge spokes are better than Ti in a strength to cost way.

Yo! Most of our team guys are on Ti spokes. They hold up much better than I would have guessed. They do help a lot as far as rotating weight goes. Whether it's worth the money though is a whole other question. For just a few extra ounces you can go with the USA Brand spokes we sell. They are just as good if not better than ANY of the overpriced name brand spokes out and WAY cheaper.

hope that helps

p.s. Double butted and triple butted are a complete waste. MAYBE a gram or two of weight savings but lots of strength loss from regular spokes.
