    Hi guys

    Snapped a nipple tonight on an old pair of aksium wheels getting the winter bike ready.. Question i have is the broken nipple is a 16mm nipple i think or could be 14mm nipple .. but i wana replace it with a 12 mm nipple , im sure i have loads of thread left on the spoke for the shorter nipple .. Anyone think this will give me a problem
