so ive been lookin into wheels.. not pre-built.. but wheel components.. and i have a question about sppoke selection..

most presicely DT spokes.. double butted, triple butted and aero double butted varietys... i know what butted spokes are.. i have em on the MTB :D

what im wondering.. between triple butted n aero double butted.. any downsides?? i mean.. tripples butted.. wow!! thats a slight margin for error as i understand wheelbuilding

aero double butted. sounds interesting for an all round wheelset to me.. lighter than straight.. and a little aero advantage.. just enough to play tricks with your head lol ( man those spokes make such a HUUGE improvement!!!.. i can now sprint to 60mph woot!!!).. we all know those stories...

but seriosuly.. any experience.. gimme!!! :D

double butted spokes are fine.
Aero spokes cost 3 times as much.
I like Sapim CX Rays although they do cost $3 per spoke its not a lot extra when you are spending $600 on wheels, thousands on a bike and will be riding them for a long time.
If you want good wheels at a lower cost then just use double butted.
