Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

What size nipples for Deep V?

Question for wheelbuilders: What size nipples do you use on velocity deep v rims? Plain old normal normal 12mm or do you use 16mm? Thanks.

i used plain old normal 12mm. the actual thickness that the nipple sticks in the rim isn't overly deep.
