OK we read this thread because we are big. In my 20 years of riding I have never been under 230lbs. Post what wheels you are riding. I have several sets of wheels. Post what are your favorite type of wheels. Mine are 36 spoke handbuilt, what I use are Mavic Open Sports with double butted spokes. I have had good luck with these. I ride them on rough roads, gravel and they keep going. The good thing about 36 spoke wheels are that if one breaks you can tweak it and still ride.
