    spoke-nipple manufacturer compatibility

    I ordered spokes, rim, and hub last week, but forgot nipples. Does it matter whether I use ones from my LBS that are not the same manufacturer?

    Unless you're building something that uses proprietary nipples, like the DA paired-spoke wheel I rebuilt recently.

    But my money's on your build being OK with LBS nipples.
