MTB Rim for Recumbent
I'm a 350lb, 6'5" clyde riding a long wheel base recumbent.
I am planning on having a bombproof rear wheel built that I can easily swap out with my current one during RABRAI.
I'm afraid that somewhere in the middle of Iowa that I'll be forced to replace a wheel with something less than optimal so I want to use the old one as a backup and ride the new one in confidence.
I'm thinking about a Sun Rhynolite rims and basically matching what I already have for hubs, cogs, etc.
Obviously, more spokes==better. Any advice on specifics?
Right now, I have a decent wheel on the back of it. (36h Mavic somethings.) Since it's a bent, it has mountain bike spacing in the rear. I don't want a super narrow wheel/tire setup.
