More things weighed

Webmaster

Up in the utilities menu I have a little tool to compute spoke weight. Today I made a couple tweaks.

First I got a better scale in the shop, which helps because this tool is based on real world weights. At the same time I changed the sample weight from 300mm to 310mm spokes. The original idea was to depart from the norm of specifying weight based on short spokes. But since I sell spokes longer than 300mm, why not choose samples of the longest length? Job done.

Second I added all varieties of nipples sold here to the measurement tool. This update includes brass and aluminum nipples in all varieties. Still to come are spoke washers and nipple washers though they weigh next to nothing and are worth it when they’re needed.
