What?

You have a source for spoke washer use for non eyeletted rims? First i've ever heard of this in 12 years.

This was already instantly true when chains when to 7/8 speed and started peening rivets.

Yes it's a safer bet, good ******g luck finding 36h rims and hubs. Does not make sense anymore to get those 4 extra spokes at the huge expense of rim and hub selection.
