Getting tired of replacing my dh alloy rims, you guys have any experience with we are one rims ? Never built a carbon wheel before, anything particular I should know before building one ? Should I still grease the nipples and oil the spoke threads ? I've seen galvanic corrosion on carbon wheels before where the nipples were totally corroded and failed, should I use aluminum or brass to minimize this problem ?

we are one is 110% legit,
i9 uses them a truckload

you should still prep threads, I use boiled linseed oil since I
have a can of it that will outlast me and an entire bike shop of builds

use brass nipples

but still, you cannot prevent all corrosion
you gotta wash the wheels and dab oil on there once in a while

big ol thread on corrosion
