not a big fan of aluminum spoke nipples. They tend to make truing a big PITA. Now, if they made them in brass, oh yeah.

Of course, I have nipples of steel, wanna see?

I think salmon is the best way to describe them.

Oh, you meant spoke nipples? They're silver.

Wow, that looks pretty much identical to the plumbing section in the hardware store I've worked at for the last two summers. Hardware stores are such naughty places, what with all the nipples, nuts, and caulks.

I'm not good with colors, so I asked my wife. I'm sure when she stops laughing she will tell me.
