I have this wheel that is missing a few spokes and has a terrible paint job. I got this wheel when I bought my bike used and I don't want to ride it because of missing spokes. So the normal thing to do is take the rim strip out and unscrew the nipple until the spoke comes out, but I can't get to the nipple! Should I poke holes in the rim strips to get to the nipple tops? HELP!

I'm pretty sure this was a vandero 1 complete wheel, male axle. I have no idea what rim this is because none of the odyssey wheels have holes in between the spokes, so I could be wrong...

Here are a few photos of it:

I'm pretty sure that's not a Vandero 1.

You were right, I figured out how to unlace it and it revealed that I'm more of a dumbass than I thought... I sanded down the hub from the layers of terribly done spray paint and it revealed a primo logo. Its a Primo Pro low flange hub, I just dont know what kind of rim it is, and I dont think it's odyssey. Any ideas?

It kinda looks like an old primo balance rim that someone drilled holes in

I think you're right, the holes don't look like they were there out of the factory and there was no paint in them. Plus I couldn't find any other rim with holes in it besides the fly classic, but they look nothing alike.
