I'm about 250 and ride a 24 front Mavic CXP30 and a rear 28 spoke. 30mm rims.
Has some to do with the builder as well. I tried these rims years ago but the LBS said I was too heavy at 220, they couldn't keep them true for more than a week..
I rebuilt them myself with new spokes years later, have 9000 miles on them no problem.
Moe thanlikely work with a good builder but IMO, I have 24, 28 and 32 and feel no difference in performance.
The dude who builds them has something to do with durability.
