    Ecb1

    I bent my rear rim twice in the last month, this time its trash, does anybody have a suggestion for a rear rim for a 255lb rider that is somewhat of an agressive rider.

    Velocity Deep-V, 32 or 36 spoke count. If these can stand up to the thrashing I give them four days a week and longer on weekends, they should be Ok for you. Me: 5' 10" 254 lbs. riding a 2006 Specialized Roubaix Elete triple. Haven't had them go out of true yet, knock on wood

    If you want a really fast wheel, Zipp 404s. That's what I use and have for the last four years. That's four years of ultra-distance racing. ie lots of fast miles! They are fast and strong! Yes they make a Clydesdale version but I just use the standard one. I range between 220-240 depending on donut consumption. There are a lot of good wheels out there, just make sure they are well built by someone who knows what they are doing!
