    Titanium Nipples from Titan Wheel Technologies

    I just learned about a new company that sells Titanium Nipples:

    http://www.titanwheeltech.com

    They're supposed to be lighter and stronger than brass or alloy nipples, but I'm mostly interested in the added strength because my wheels take a beating when I race cyclo-cross. I'm also told that titanium is basically immune to corrosion, so I'm thinking about building my next race wheelset with them. Any thoughts?

    I am semi interesting in these as well, $1 a nib does up teh price but they do appear to be resistant to corrosion and harder the strip out.

    Love the idea but for a buck a piece?
    I have a stash of rims and hubs (4 sets) waiting to be built for next year.
    I know it is just money but at 64 dollars/set wow.

    it appears that the smell of shill is wafting around.

    I'm guessing he'll disappear for another few months now that he's been outed.
