Yo homies. I am putting together a custom wheelset for some aggressive trail riding and would like your input. What has more to do with a wheels strength, spokes or nipples? What would be the best combination in terms of weight and strength. Alloy nipples with steel spokes? Or, brass nipples with alloy spokes? I realize steel with brass would be strongest. I would really appreciate your kick ass thoughts. THanks. Woogie11 out!

Spokes is far mizzle important than nipples fo` wheel strength n' sh*t. I dont know of any alloy spokes wanna be gangsta than tha ones Mavic uses in they pre-built wheels. Most spokes is steel fo my bling bling. For aggressive trail rid'n you cant go wrizzay wit DT Competition spokes wit brass nipples, although I always use alloy nipples. For mizzle ciznost, you could go wit DT Super Comp spokes fo` some weight sav'n n sh*t. As always, tha mizzle important factor in a strong wheel is tha quality of tha build n' sh*t
