I've done many searches and am looking for experienced opinions on good wheel/tire choices for a 210-220 lb. (96-100 kilo), ideally from a similar weighted person. May be used for ultralight touring but will never see over 250 pounds of total weight (and i would use only front panniers). Main use would be training and long distance riding including my first brevets. I am loving the idea of the Neuvation M28's at 1720 grams and supposedly pretty sturdy. I dont love the low spoke count, but would have no problem carrying a few extra spokes. Second option would be to have a set of Ultegra hubs laced to 32/36 hole rims and i'm thinking open pros, even though open sports may be better for me (1970-2100 grams). I value reliability, but would also love to have a lighter wheelset as my only bikes now have touring wheelsets and are not super enjoyable to ride.
I'm thinkng that i'd like to go with Continental 4seasons in 28mm or the Panaracer rolly pollies or ruffy tuffies. any advice from heavier randoneurs would be appreciated.
BTW, im 6'3' and will likely never weigh less than 200, and i'm pretty gently on my wheels. thanks
