Single vs. double butted spokes
I'm having a freind build up a set of wheels with 32h Deep V's. Chris King up front and a rear XT hub. This is what he has so this is what I'm getting. (and I can't beat the price)
My question is on the spokes. I've read on the forums that it's always double butted spokes for tandem wheels, but now I'm told that going with single butted instead of double butted results in a stronger nipple shoulder (which is where road spokes typically break if they don't break at the j-bend) He has built LOTS of wheels and knows all about even, high ension, etc.
Is this the single bike wheel builder stuff that TG speaks of?
