spoke and nipple compadibility
random question: do spokes and nipples have thread pitch compatibility issues, or are they standardized? I'm lacing up a wheel with some spokes (new, but have been sitting around), and the nipples give me a tad bit of resistance when I thread them on.
the spokes are double butted, and the right length, but I can't remember where I got them -- they might be wheelsmith, might be DT, maybe sapim. I dunno.
when I lube the spoke threads slightly, thread them on, off, and then back on, it gets somewhat smoother, but I don't want to lace the thing only to have the nipples pop when I get the thing up to tension. anybody know the answer to this?
