Bontrager Camino rims, anyone have any experience?
So, I'm eyeballing the Trek 7.3 FX
for use as a city commuter.
Now, the specs list: "Alloy front, Shimano Deore rear hub; Bontrager Camino rims"
All I'm trying to do is get a sense of what the sturdiness of these rims are. I'm a big guy (6'4", 250lbs), who will be adding panniers with stuff in them and I want to make sure that they won't just fold over and die on me. Are they single or double walled (I'm supposing single), but to have some solid stats would be nice.
I've searched the net and the forums to no avail. I've also visited the Bontrager site, and they don't even list them as being products, which is annoying. Is it another
Any advice or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
