    I always thought the spoke wrenches were citing the metric spoke nut size not spoke gauge. Am I wrong?
     
  4. Sitched from a Gary Fischer Wahoo to one of these. I saw this blue one about two months ago on WM's site and I saw one in my local and bought it. Spokes are massive! I don't know what size they are but definately bigger than previous models. Been runnin around on mine for a couple a weeks now and i gotta say this thing feels TONS more stable than that G.F. I'm hard on my rides and the streets here in Denver aren't nice either and they hold up well. The Wahoo had Alex wheels laced to Deore hubs and these wheels honestly feel stronger. We'll see how they hold up in the long run but so far it's great. Heres some pics

    I have the blue Delmar from Wally I know that I have to use the 14 slot my spoke wrench but I the 12 slot was the only one that would fit if you go to Wally u can see a visible difference in the spoke size compared to the standard 14 gauge used on last years cranbrook

    Is it just me and u that think that these wheel have bigger spokes, we know by the pics they have bigger spoke nipples and the rim is bigger also. I will pic one up next week from Wally
