Once they were loctited though they were good, didn't budge. But ideally you'd use the Strongs on the DS and a thinner spoke on the NDS.
Good to know. Thank you, Sir, for the first-hand experience info. I will follow your advice and lace the "Strongs" on the DS and the triple-butted "Force" on the NDS. I read about that combination a few nights ago. It's great to have the confirmation of the info.
G'day Mate.
Jon
