    BWW Spoke question

    I am planning to order a set of wheels from bicycle wheel warehouse (cxp22 rims to formula hubs so I can also try the fixie game on my SS cross bike) but I am unsure about spoke options.

    How are their default spokes? I can upgrade to DT Champion 2.0 for $10 but I have no idea how these compare to the stock spokes. I am trying to keep costs down but if $10 saves me a lot of weight over some ultra heavy generic spokes it would be worth it...but DT Champion 2.0s aren't that light to start with.

    you're fooling only yourself if you're concerned about the weight of a spokes from a CXP22/formula wheelset.

    if you want to save weight on spokes, you go with a double butted spoke like the competitions.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I'm afraid of what the default spokes are if DT champion is an "upgrade".

    Has anyone else actually bought some of there wheels?

    I feel like their standard house spokes can't really be that much cheaper/crappier and rather they are just trying to get people to spring for the DT name on the lowest end spokes (since similarily priced wheels from bicyclewheels.com already use them and can turn a profit)
