SAPIM Double Butted 14/15G Stainless Spokes (20 pack) $15.95


Sapim butted spokes have two major benefits: less weight and more strength!  Technological advances using cold forging (SAPIM Forging Technology) 'stretch' the spoke, retaining the linear molecular structure of the material, thereby increasing the spoke strength at the middle by at least 48%.  As an added bonus, the thin middle section of the light Race spokes also provides better shock absorption.

  • Strength on middle section : 1350N/mm²

Rock 'n' Roll "Nipple Cream" Spoke Prep $5.95


If you build wheels, this is what your handcrafted wheels deserve. Nipple Cream holds the nipple from vibrating loose but allows the wheel to be trued long after it has been built and ridden. 1 oz applicator bottle.


VELOX Rim Tape $2.95


Velox cloth rim tape protects your tube from puncture caused by the spoke nipples or sharp edges on the inside of the rim. Available in three widths: 10mm (road), 17mm (mtb), 22mm (DH/BMX). Enough for one wheel (1 roll). Add to Cart for size and quantity.


Veloplugs by Velocity $9.95


Rim spoke hole plugs. Why wrap your complete rim with a roll of heavy cloth tape when for less than half the weight you can use the Veloplug.

Incredible blowout strength and takes well over 400psi. Tires start to fail long before the Veloplug.

Spoke replacement is simplified as there is no need to remove a sticky strip. Just pop out the Veloplug over the offending spoke and pop it back in when repairs are complete. They can be used over and over.

The Veloplug fits any rim with a nominal 8mm web hole. This covers most of the Velocity range as well as many 'Brand X' rims.

Package of 72 Veloplugs, enough for 2 - 36 spoked wheels.
