Stuck nipples

Postby Don » Sat Feb 21, 2015 6:09 pm

Is there any hope for my stuck nipples? After a long overdue replacement of well worn brake blocks, I find that my rear wheel has a slight wobble - enough to bind a little on the fresh brake blocks. I dug out the spoke key to see if I could straighten it out and found all the spoke nipples are stuck. The wheel is a Mavic Aksium - bladed steel spokes with alloy nipples.
Once these alloy nipples are seized, are they stuck for good? Or is there something that'll free them up? Plusgas? 3-In-1? Wishful Thinking?
