I’ll admit that when I first came to Unior and was told about the “Speed Nipple Bits” I laughed. My sense of humor is not dissimilar to that of a 10 year old. Since then I’ve gotten to use this nifty little tool and every time I think back to my first days at my first bike shop where my job was to sit in the back and build fixie wheels. Day in and day out for weeks. We were a college area shop in an urban area and fixies were just becoming popular in my hometown of Milwaukee. We did lots of conversions and there wasn’t a decent quality, low-price fixed gear wheel at the time, so we did a lot of custom builds.
Anyway, when I was first introduced to the Speed Nipple Bit I wasn’t quite sure what to make of it. And I realized the pictures of it might not fully explain its purpose or use. So I made a video and posted it to our new YouTube channel.
