In another forum someone asked Kirk and he said he thinks 110kgf is sufficient and that he recommends a max of 125kgf.
The context was not a discussion of clydesdales on his wheels, if that changes anything.
ps: I haven't had the money to order all my parts yet, so I've been piece-mealing it. I have the front hub, the rim tape, and I ordered the nipple washers. Haven't ordered the rims or the spokes yet.
edit: oops, someone posted this already. Shoulda read all the way to the bottom before quoting bigfred.
