Has anybody tried titanium spokes on their bike? A friend of mine has a set of 19" and 21" spokes that he is trying to talk me into buying from him. There is a big difference in weight between 36 ti spokes and 36 steel spokes. I am just a little worried about them being brittle. Anybody have a take on this?

I honestly dont believe this would make any difference whatsover to the weight or performance of the bike

You have to be an extremely hot rider to have the weight of spokes make a difference :)

As far as I am concerned he is trying to scam you into to buying them off him
