So I have a couple of odd wheels that im thinking of stripping into there various parts, i.e hubs-spokes-nipples( :lol: nipple :lol: ) rims.

Now is there any specific way of doing this? or do I just losen each spoke a bit in turn all the way round the rim?

Cheers. 8)

It's generally accepted as bad form to completely undo one spoke at a time, far better to relieve half a turn from each spoke working around until the tension is gone.
