Problem with Mavic wheels is if you have a problem you have to deal with the dealer, Mavic doesn't want anything to do with the consumer, consumer unfriendly company.
I started riding at 242 lbs and now I weigh 211 lbs, my accurate body fat is 17.6%.
Even at my weight I wouldn't ride a wheel without at least 32 spokes and preferably 36 spokes and I prefer dual butted spokes. Plus I prefer deep dish wheels because they are stronger. The stronger the rim, the less flex there will be in the spokes, and the less chance chance of them breaking.
