I'm thinking of converting an 08 Turner RFX with a Vanilla 36 fork to 27.5 but I'm having trouble making up my mind on rims and spokes. I'd also like to know if I can get away with alloy nipples.
Spoke short list:
DT Competition 2.0-1.8-2.0 stainless steel butted spokes
DT Champion 14 Gauge Spokes
Rim short list:
Velocity blunt 35
For tires I'm planning on Schwalbe Hans Dampf 2.35
Any insight would be appreciated before I drop a huge chunk of change on these wheels.
