What does a magnet tell you about the spokes?
just got them on ebay, should be the end of the week before i get them. The coloring on the spokes looks like Ti to me thats why i asked.
Nice score for $31
thanks i thought so too.
If they are kind of rainbow colored then they may be titanium. Back in the '90s there was a company that made "ti-die" spokes that were kind of purplish-blue-green.
Magnetic stainless is the 400 series, it's OK, but not considered 'real stainless', by some, and is
much cheaper to buy & scrap than the other grades.
I have a pair of Cane Creek with Ti spokes and they are about that color blue. I think you can anodize Ti just about any color nowadays...
hmmmm so the wheels came in today(finnaly). The spokes go from gold at the hub to purple to blue to green. What do you think
I bought an old/er set of wheels with Campy hubs and rims and Ti spokes. Was really light. Broke a spoke on my first ride after tweaking all of them. Broke 2 more on the 3rd ride.
These are the only 3 spokes I've ever popped.
Relaced the wheels with some new standard wheelsmith DB spokes - they may weigh a few grams more but I haven't had a problem since.
well thats not very encouraging, oh well they were 30 bucks ill take my chances i guess
