    I can't believe I resisted posting on this. Well, I really didn't but not in the way my brain was screaming at me to do.

    Alloy are a dull grey whereas brass are shiny silver - sounds like yours are alloy. I built a pair of wheels with DT Rev spokes and alloy nipples - after a few months the nipples started breaking due to stress corrosion - since replaced with brass and not touched them since.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
  • Have you got brown nipples?

    Thanks. Someone needed to do that.

  • Sounds like you should return the wheels anyway. Not fit for purpose.

    Doesn't really matter whether your nipples are made of alloy, brass, industrial diamond or chocolate, you should be sending the wheels back to Ribble before they kill you.

    As Stig said, not fit for purpose and the sale of goods act spring to mind

    Depending what expenses you are incurring send them back to ribble and ask for a new replacement.

    Why are you having to get new wheels - at least without a contribution = to cost of pro-lites?
