Brass Nipples

Wheels built to last

It’s so tempting for wheel builders to use alloy nipples as they are light and give the choice of flashy colours. However we have experienced many seized and rounded alloy nipples and even had to completely rebuild wheels with new spokes for customers who have bought their (non Blue Flow) wheels to us for a simple spoke tension and true. For us, the slight weight penalty of brass nipples is far and away worth the price for much harder, stronger nipples that will never seize to your spoke. Longevity cannot be quantified with numbers but is high on our priority list when building our wheels. 

Choose either silver of black brass nipples when you order
