I'm thinking of using Pillar Mega Lite SS spokes on a set of 50mm carbon tubular rims from X-Bike laced to BikeHubStore hubs. I'm a 130lbs. rider.

http://www.pillarspoke.com/p04-1_mega_lite_ss.htm

Do you think they'll be ok? Or should I use a different spoke!

Thanks!

Spokes might be robust enough, but I would be more worry about your rims choice. Just my 2 cents in the subject of X-Bike rims (1k miles, ish)

These funny patterns, in fact they are the wrinkles. And if you look carefully you will notice the dents in the surface where the nipples sit.

Crap...

Too late now. I guess I'll just build them up and see what happens. :(

What causes the wrinkles?

I'll second questioning the choice of rim. Mine after 447 miles: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=87659&start=45#p932646

I hope you hadn't planned to do much descending on them.

Well, crap...

It seems as though I inadvertently chose a suicide rim. Is there a safe reliable rim that's 300g or less?

I really want the Reynolds 32 rims at 260g. But I want to pay WAY less than $800 per rim!!!!!
