Any one know where I can source internal spoke nipples for a reynolds solitude wheelset. Been trawling the net for hours now and still no joy....

Thanks

    I've only ever found places in the US that sell them. They're Pillar PT7385H nipples. Oddly there are loads of places to buy the tool to fit them.

    Chain Reaction sell Cane Creek nipples that might do the job.

    Just use regular nipples just fitted upside down - I use Sapim hexagonal nipples (try Dotbike) as the have a domed surface without a slot which means if you're using them on carbon, they don't chew up the rim. Alternatively, use a regular nipple inverted with a washer. I'd also stick with brass - I had some ally nipples corrode on the inside of a carbon rim which meant I had to cut through a load of CX-Ray spokes before I could sort out the wheel.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
