rainbow anodized titanium spoke poke

May 17, 2014

got my hands on some rainbow ti spokes but they're not really rainbow they're more like purple fade to gold but commonly refered to as rainbow and they're really short and there are only 15 of them not enough to build a wheel not enough to build half a wheel even and too short for anything but a 20 inch radially laced so I could have wrapped a rubber band around them and tossed them in the corner for 10 or 20 years or something but I decided to bend them in squiggles and swirls and plant them in a block of wood and call it art.

when you get a chance take a titanium spoke and wrap it around a #2 pencil all the way to the elbow and you'll have a nice tight coil spring that sounds a bit different than the spokes you're used to when you drop it on a cement floor the pencil may not survive the trip and need to be replaced by something stronger like a three foot chunk of rebar
