Dave, I read, and would have to remember where, that you use beekeepers wire.(Might have been Lennard Zinn?)
Ebay item: 190106336800
Again, I would have to research, but I think DT sells the wire too.
I've used stainless steel wire used on aircraft, since I have loads of it. I fluxed each tie real good, and the solder (of which I also have loads of) stuck.
The wheels I did were not high wheelers like many of yours, but 700c.

Can someone tell me what you guys use for wire to tie & solder spokes and where you get it?
