I have a nice set of Easton Haven rims with the solid rim beds so you don't even need to tape them. They use proprietary nipples that thread into the inside of the rim and have straight pull spokes. Problem is the bubs are trashed. I want to rebuild them with hubs I already have lying around, but the good hubs use j bend spokes. In my head it seems that these would be impossible to true because the nipples can't turn or they won't be screwed into the rims all the way, and the spokes can't rotate because of the j bend.
Do I have this right or am I missing something that would make this build work?
Thanks,
