Cheap and cheerful, get the job done.
£0.15 – £0.18
Black Brass Polyax Nipples are cheap-and-cheerful, getting the job done just fine and providing that vital connection between spoke and rim.
Polyax nipples have a rounded, rather than flat, head which provides better spoke/nipple alignment up to 9°.
Regardless of nipple material we always recommend using a little lubrication between nipple and rim interface.
Please note that the black colouring of these nipples is done by a process of electro-plating which can wear-off somewhat during building.
All spokes and nipples are 56TPI thread.
Thread diameter varies, based on gauge with 14g; 2mm, 13g, 2.3mm, 12g; 2.6mm available.
