Has any one built a disc wheel with titanium spokes?
I have built a rim brake wheel set with Marwi Ti spokes with 15 rides and 2 crashes and they are still true.

I think stylomylo has used Ti. spokes in his front disc wheel. Only on the non disk side though. I believe he has DT on the disc side.

I've seen it done, and it works.

In my not so humble opinion, I prefer to only build wheels with double butted spokes. They have been proven to last longer, stay straighter and are less likely to break.

Bring on the DB Ti spoke.
