Why we have Stainless Steel spokes and Brass nipples… Why?
The first reason is corrosion. When moisture builds up between the steel spoke and the steel nipple, it creates problems truing which will not happen with a brass nipple. Brass nipples allow for easy adjustment and do not require lubrication.
Second, over time, steel spokes and nipples can bond under pressure, eventually becoming welded together. We consider spokes and nipples of different materials are the best choice to avoid this problem.
In our 30 years of experience, using steel spokes with brass nipples is the better choice.
