Why should you use brass nipples on a bicycle wheel build?
Brass nipples are often used in bicycle wheel builds due to their superior durability and corrosion resistance compared to aluminum nipples. Brass nipples are less prone to corroding or seizing onto spokes over time, which can make wheel truing or spoke replacement difficult or even impossible. Additionally, brass nipples are more resistant to stripping or rounding out compared to aluminum nipples, which can occur during the wheel-building process if excessive force is applied. As a result, brass nipples are a popular choice for high-end and custom wheel builds where durability and longevity are a priority.
