Contrary to everything I've read on forums or that I'd get in a response if I made a thread asking if I should get them or not, they've taken quote a beating from me and have yet to fail me once. I've done 6ft + drops with them, learned whips and flat whips with them, my flat threes pretty much always bash my front wheel, I hopped an 11 stair with them I think, and a lot more stuff but I think my point is clear. I also re laced them 3 times if that matters. I don't understand why everyone has to make such a big deal saying that they'll break super easily and that no one should ride them or that their stupid or whatever.

Cool story bro.

Do you do heavy grinds with them? How much do you weigh? What rims are you running? Whats the width of your hub flanges? How long have you been riding them?

There's alot more that factors into the durability of a spoke than how many stairs you can hit and what wheel you land on when you 360.

I would never run them simply because Titanium is a weaker material than steel. I would rather be safe than sorry, even if I could get away with riding them.

Wait till they seize to your nipples, then you'll be in trouble. I just found out my Ti spindle seized to by sprocket even with anti-seize. sad

'Weaker' is a bit of a vague description in this case. It's much harder, so a lot less likely to flex, but it is very brittle, so it's usually more prone to snapping.
