    Mavic OP's or CXP are nice and strong. Velocity's would be fine too. I'm similar weight and I use some Supergo Aero wheels w/ no problems.

    Just good old Mavic Open Pro, either 32 or 36 holes. These have been used and are used by generations of cross riders. Sapim "race" spokes and mentioned 105 hubs and your save.
