Hi all,

I have acquired some mavic heliums and one or two of the nipples on the rear wheel are rather horribly rounded off which means I can't get it quite true.

Does anyone know if I can use a bog standard nipple as a replacement? I've tried and failed to find any technical docs on the internet.

If that won't work any suggestions on where I might be able to get some replacement spokes gratefully received.

Cheers,

MrBlond

From memory a standard nipple fits fine :)
