ABOUT WHEELSMITH When Wheelsmith Fabrications started in 1980, we were the first company to perfect mass-production of high-quality stainless steel bicycle spokes. This year we celebrate our 28th year of business - and Wheelsmith spokes continue to be the finest available. With our many years of experience, there are few techniques we haven’t tried and few situations we haven’t encountered. As a result of this vast database of wheel knowledge, Wheelsmith not only turns out an ideal spoke, but we also offer the nipples and wheelbuilding tools necessary to all who seek a better bicycle wheel.

WHAT WE PRODUCE We are proud to make and supply the following products: • B  utted, bladed, ovalised, and straight-gauge stainless steel spokes • Wheelsmith SpokePrep™

• Aluminium nipples in a wide array of colours • Duristan™, our corrosion-proof nipple plating


WHEELSMITH NIPPLES PRECISION FORGED

MORE THREADS

Wheelsmith nipples are precision forged from high-grade brass or 7000 series aluminium. Their strength is enhanced by forging the spoke wrench flats, keeping them full-width and very uniform.

Wheelsmith nipples have more threads than others. Each Wheelsmith nipple holds a full 8mm of thread, 33% more than our major competitors’ nipples. The extra threads are in the region of the spoke wrench flat, reinforcing the flats and making collapse less likely. This additional threading also benefits wheel assembly since each nipple catches the spoke earlier, leaving more slack during lacing. The Wheelsmith nipple is 1mm longer than others. This, combined with the extra threads, makes it less sensitive to spoke length estimates. The threading is far less likely to show once a wheel is finished.

All Wheelsmith aluminium nipples are anodised to guarantee maximum strength and service life.

DURISTAN™ PLATING

MARKED FOR GAUGE

Wheelsmith nipples are coated with a unique intermetallic substance second only to gold for its corrosion resistance. Nickel or chrome plating, once the preferred coatings for many bicycle parts, was gradually replaced by superior materials, except on spoke nipples. Duristan™ produces a brilliant, shiny surface with a slightly blue cast.

Wheelsmith nipples are marked to indicate spoke gauge. The slotted heads of 14 gauge nipples are left blank, while those of the 15 gauge nipples are stamped with two or three easily readable radial lines. There need never be any doubt as to which nipple is appropriate. Every part of the Wheelsmith nipple is improved. Forged flats, more threads, new gauge markings, greater length, and revolutionary plating all contribute to its superiority.

SPOKE PREP

THE ULTIMATE SPOKE THREAD COMPOUND IS SPOKEPREP™ BECAUSE IT IS BOTH A LUBRICANT AND A THREAD LOCK! HOW CAN IT DO BOTH? WHEN SPOKE TENSION IS LOW AND THERE IS RISK OF LOOSENING, SPOKEPREP “LOCKS” THE NIPPLE BY MAINTAINING A MINIMUM NIPPLE TORQUE. WHEN SPOKE TENSION IS HIGH SPOKEPREP KEEPS NIPPLE TORQUE LOW WITH TEFLON LUBRICATION. WE ALSO HAVE SPOKEPREP IN TWO COLOURS SO YOU CAN PREP YOUR SPOKES AND IMMEDIATELY KNOW ON WHICH SIDE OF THE WHEEL THEY WILL BE USED.
