Which spoke nipples? The fairly normal looking ones or the ones that are almost entirely inside the rim? 14 or 15 guage? I think I have some of each if I can find them. I also have the tool, but you're probably better off with a good quality nut driver the right size. The tool is just a tube that's been forced over a hex to make a socket, then had a rod put through it crosswise.

Hello list, I'm on the hunt for a Hi-E spoke wrench. I'd also like to find a possible source for Hi-E nipples. I'm trying to get a wheelset together and I need to replace the spokes on one wheel which uses the proprietary nipples and I also need to source either a complete Hi-E rear wheel w/126mm spacing, Hi-E nipples & wrench to build a wheel (I have rims and hubs) or confirmation as to whether or not I can use standard nipples with my Hi-E rims.

Any info or leads would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers!
