which Sun rim - mammoth or rhyno lite?

I weigh 275 and want a super heavy duty durable bombproof 26 inch rear wheel for my Schwinn "Impact".

At the shop I saw a Sun Rhyno Lite 26" with Deore cassette hub.
The price was right. I just dunno if that particular wheel is tough enough.

In your experience, which is the tougher the Sun Rhyno Lite or the Sun Mammoth??

Picture a 275 lb rider with maybe 40 to 50 lbs camping gear trudging off into the boonies. Which wheel?

Well, that just depends if your gonna be useing airless tires or not.

JUST KIDDING -

The rhino lite will be fine - if your not doing huge drops or jumps, and it's built well, it'll last forever.

In November 2001 I installed Ocelot 26x1.9 160 psi no-flat tires (no air tube - solid polyurethane and nylon) from www.airfreetires.com on my Schwinn "Impact" 18 speed mountain bike. After eight months and a tad over 2000 road miles I am pleased to report that these tires are A-OK. They have zilch rolling resistance, cannot go flat or blow out and roll through broken glass and nails with impunity.

I weigh 275 and special ordered 160 psi-equivalent tires as I wanted and got zilch rolling resistance.

Hmmmm weighs 275 + rides a Schwinn "Impact" (in quotation marks none the less) = BUSTED



Vlad = Vladislav = King Spamatola


But seriously the answer is Mammoths.

Ryno Lites are 'decent'. But really it depends on the riding you do.
