Oil, Grease and Spoke Prep all help the wheel come up to tension without the
super loud creaking of the nipple or twisting of the spoke.
All will help with corrosion of the spokes threads, oil will wash off the
easiest while grease stays put a bit longer. Spoke prep is good for a long
time and also helps keep the spokes tight. It acts like a loctite.
Before I moved to the Shore I always use oil. Coming from the prairies this is
all you needed. The first wheel I build for myself once moving to the Shore
detention-ed easily on the first ride. Since then I always use spoke prep.
