Hello

I own a 2015 Campagnolo Bora Ultra 50, and I must replace all the nipples and spokes, for both wheels. I've found Fulcrum Racing Speed replacement spokes and nipples sets at a much lower price than Campys, but I'm not sure if this will work out. Any thoughts?

Not sure if they'll work either, but curious as to what happened that requires you to replace all the spokes and nipples?

Extreme salty humid environment and lack of cleaning had disintegrated the aluminium nipples, so there are almost no chance to save any single spoke, just cut them out.

Yes, the rims, although some little structural differences, are exactly the same height. I-m afraid hubs have different outer diameters.

If it's only the nipple, why cut the stainless steel (non corroding) spokes then? Have you tried to source the nipples only?

Google might help but also ebay has this seller http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Campagnolo- ... 28110a50f9

Wait, I am pretty sure that Fulcrum has not updated their 50mm rim to match the 24mm width of the latest Bora wheels. More importantly, the G3 spoke pattern and drilling on rims used on Fulcrum wheels is a bit more spread out compared to Bora. Presumably both of these variables would effect spoke length compared to Boras.
