Hi, does anybody know what type of spoke key I need to true Reynolds Cirro SV's? They are the older versions with LTA hubs. They look like standard nipples inverted but I'm not sure. I've used the search facility but I'm still confused, do I need a 5mm hex driver or a stardard deep section spoke key like the FSA one?

I think that the older ones were inverted nipples. Now they are not metric (I think they are 3/16, I'm away right now).

This is from the Reynolds Web Site:
Quote:
What spoke wrench do I need to true my Reynolds wheels?
Reynolds has both a professional spoke tool and a personal spoke tool that will allow you to true/tension the hex nipple on Reynolds wheels. Otherwise 3/16” or 5 mm socket driver or an older Campy t-handle spoke wrench will work as well.

I am just going to repeat what StrongBad (Love your weekly emails) and Ergott said that it is a 3/16th nut driver.

Thanks guys, looks like I'll try 3/16. I read the Reynolds site too, an either or answer isn't much good is it, I worked that one out myself!

yes ... 5mm socket driver and you can mail order a set from Maplin for about £4 i think.

I did and it works!

I'm a big fan of right tool for the job. 5mm doesn't fit anywhere near as well as the proper 3/16. You won't be applying much torque on them, but if you are going to get a new tool, get the right one. They Reynolds tool is real nice as the outer diameter is smaller that a standard nut driver making it easier to get in and out of the rim.
