    Lubeing nipples on Mavic Xmax slr

    Thinking about applying some oil to my Mavic's nipples before working on them with my TS 2.2. The question is : where the lube should go ?? Where the spoke meets the nipple,where the nipple meets the rim or all of the above ??

    Also lube the hub ends as well...

    I had some Mavic nipples set up due to salt so the lube should help prevent stuff like that too.
