View Full Version : Keep nipples when removing hub?

I have begun stripping frames and I have several damaged wheels, where I have simply cut out the hubs, and was wondering whether it would be worth saving the nipples from the cut off spokes?

I'd rather use new nips, the old ones have been stressed and they may last, but again they may not. For peace of mind, go with new.
