If you are a top lever time trialist with every other aero aid going then doing away with exposed nipples I suppose make sence. If the above does not apply then I really don't see the point. Even in fast racing the advantage is goin to to very small indeed. If you are as fast as me then there really is no point at all. I need to something about my pace.

I'm not time trialist, but in season 2013 I'll be racing with Polish PROs, in hardest Polish races except Tour de Pologne. But aero isn't the main reason, the main reason is unluckily money. I'm 18 years old high school student and I need to count every penny.

What do You think about using such nipples:

If you have rim for internal nipple it is ok (hole on rim 2-2,5mm).

This kind of nipple are ok but if you tighten them on innner side dont go hrd on them becouse "head" can quickly break.

Zezipl,
the nipples you picture, as far as I know, are for external truing: the longer part goes through the rim. You should be able to tell. If the threads in the short side of the nipple go right to the exit, that end should be up. All nipples have a section of hole that is unthreaded where the spoke enters.
American Classic patented those nipples, they allow the nipple head to be held in compression instead of in tension...

I've just ordered shorter spokes for standard nipples, I'm not so brave to chech if internal nipples with standard rim will be save.
It would be good idea to start making internal nipples for standard rims, something like these cnspokes, but upside-down and with 3mm of rounded section in the inside.

spokes come with nipples though which spokes are you buying that don't come with nipples.

All Sapim spokes for example come in a box or bag with nipples. No one should be charging extra for nipples.

BTI and Hawley both sell their Sapims without nipples. Always have.

I buy CN Aero424, very similar to CX-Ray and Aerolite, but half the price :)

Hi zezipl, where do you buy the CN Aero424 from ... thanks

for example we have http://www.velotech.sklepna5.pl/towar/2 ... black.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
and can send abroad.
You can also buy this spokes from
http://www.cnc-bike.de/product_info.php ... ts_id=1337" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;


I wrote, that i think they are better spoke than Cx ray, i feel more stiff when truing finaly wheels.

Example latest wheels

4x on a 28 hole wheel would seem to be too extreme. The optimal orientation is for the spoke to be exiting the flange perpendicular to an imaginary line crossing the center of the hub and the center of the specific spoke hole used.

Hi veloflyte, yes you are right ... I have been reading everyones posts and this article ... http://www.troubleshooters.com/bicycles/wheelbuilding/index.htm#_Install_the_First_Two_or_Three_Spokes

Sorry, the following is just a summary ramble of what I have learnt thus far ... wrote:

It would appear, depending on hub dia, that a 28H 4x lacing would result in the spokes having a greater than tangential flange departure. It would appear that even though a tangential flange departure (3x, 4x, or even 5x) is the excellent for transmitting power/torque (torsional stiffness), or when braking with a Disc/Hub brake, it isn't as good for supporting weight or taking bumps. It would appear that it's usually best that spoke flange departure is less than tangential (more perpendicular), especially as tangential departure will bring a spoke very close to the head of the first spoke it crosses, which can create problems such as premature spoke wear (breakage) due to the friction created by spoke/spoke head contact.

It would appear that to get a strong and stiff wheel spoke interlacing is required, and this is where 2x/3x/4x improve, re supporting weight or taking bumps, as the wheel becomes less like a spoked wheel and more like a solid one. It would appear that interlacing reduces spoke friction where spoke friction consumes energy, causes spoke breakage due friction and fatigue, and theoretically makes your wheel slower. This is why the low NDS tension is an issue, where some have resorted to tieing spokes together at the cross, although this won't completely prevent spoke flex.

It would appear that to build an acceptably strong/stiff wheel, that DS/NDS bracing angle should be at least 10 degrees ...

It would appear that less spoke flex/friction is achieved by using higher spoke tensions, which requires stronger Rims, Spokes, Nipples, and Hub Flanges to be used. This is also achieved through spoke interlacing, which is a safer and more durable option than using high spoke tensions. Downside of Interlacing is that it requires more spokes to used and as such will produce a heavier wheel. Spokes such as Sapim Laser/CX-Ray, MAC 424/360, DT AeroLite, Pillar Bladed, etc help with the weight penalty and the higher spoke tensions ...

It would appear that DS/NDS spoke tension do not need to be equal, although better Lateral Stiffness is achieved if they are equal. For Dished Wheels, flange spacing appears to help with DS/NDS spoke tensions, as does 20:10 4xDS 0xNDS, 18:9 3xDS 0xNDS, 16:8 2xDS 0xNDS, 2:1 Triplet 2xDS 0xNDS, 4xDS 2xNDS, 2xDS 3xNDS, 0xDS 1xNDS or 2xNDS lacings ...

It would appear that Radial stiffness is achieved though 2x/3x/4x interlaced lacing patterns, Rim strength, and Spoke tension. The reason 1x is not much stronger than 0x is because it cannot be interlaced and is probably only used because the hub flanges are not strong enough for radial lacing or it perhaps assists a little with more even spoke tensions ...


I have probably missed quite alot, but does this sound right ...

I am 150 lbs, race cat 4 poorly, and want a good all-around wheelset

I'm considering a build of
new pacenti SL23 rim
ck r45 hubs
24 radial front /28 3x rear
alloy nipples
cx-ray spokes

...and wondered what the hive mind thinks of the options, and recommends for spoke and pattern options

@motorthings- Sounds like a pretty sweet build to me. I cant wait to get my hands on that new Pacenti hoop.

Klabs,
sorry, but there are quite a few parts of that quoted article that are way, way off base.
Equalizing left/right tension on a rear wheel does not help lateral stiffness.
Crossing spokes does nothing for radial stiffness.
Interlacing spokes can reduce spoke head movement, but its benefits are debatable. Many modern wheelsystems, with and without straight pull spokes, forego interlacing due to the results of their testing.
Spoke head movement isn't reduced to cut down on power loss due to friction.
there is more there, but that's all I remember...
