Spokes are not designed to hold up against grinding. They don't really suck. They do their job of holding the rim in place and anchored to the hub.

If you are grinding through spokes, it doesn't matter what spokes you have...you NEED a hub guard.

I do stuff and I'm not good at it.

i think the gsport gland looks kinda dumb but i might get it.

so what if he can smith rails. he still might just grind with his wheel super close to ledges and stuff. or riding rough ledges will eat spokes

That doesn't mean he doesn't grind through spokes. Just because you're good at grinding doesn't mean you're doing it properly (for lack of a better word... by 'properly' I just mean being easy on your equipment). Anyway, no those spokes do not suck. On the contrary, they're quite good. They hold the rim right around the hub, just like they should.

they are pretty good my friends always come loose. and the best spokes in the world will get fucked up if you grind on them. they arent made to be grinded on without a hub and/or spoke guard

there aint no spoke meant to be ground, if he's going to ride like a hammerhead he needs a hub guard or extra spokes to replace the ones he is going to grind through.

Titanium spokes dont flex very well. Actually they dont flex at all really. So they will just snap unless you pretty much land super clean. And they cost an arm and a leg.

This may be from '09 but I have a hard time believing riversidebilly ran titanium spokes

hub guards....use em...and the only thing better than primo is sapim, after that theyre pretty much all the same...primo, shadow, etc.

Who cares honestly their spokes everything will break and require new ones. Unless he grinded through a whole wheel then ask,but a couple spokes isn't tremendous. Not being a dick* Grinding just does that. Wait and try 360 feebs lol bye wheel

I have had primo spokes for the longest time. Your spokes will last as long as you keep them safe. That includes keeping a grind in a straight line.. But shit happens and sooner or later little things like spokes are going to break. My front wheel is like
30% GT/random spokes that I have laying around. fuck it.
