To be realistic, reworking the 550 hub the way i said will take less than 20 minutes to actually do, its just i was trying to be explicit as to how and what to do in case you wanted a "step by step" written process, which takes a lot of fiddley explaining.
Just buying another hub is probably what you should have done initially, and kick away on yourself for selling the Veloce wheels with pleasure.
Campyfan wrote:Ah well what can i say that you havent said already Richard, alloy nipples are really not for everyday wheel sets and the corrosive nature of water mixed with salt or sweat only makes matters worse. As you found out after a while they crumble and turn to dust when you try to make any adjustments to the spokes.
