    spoke recommendation?

    I'll be building up a new wheel tomorrow and I need to order spokes. All of my previous builds have been either straight gauge or DT competition (14/15/14 butted.) I'm thinking about maybe doing these up with DT revolution (14/17/14 butted.) Do any of you have strong opinions/experience that I should know about? I'm 220# and ride hard.

    If you are building 36 hole 3X, you can go with DT revolution (usually only recommended for the front, but I use them on the back as well...I weigh 135).

    If you are building anything smaller, stick with DT competition.

    FWIW, at your weight I would go with 36 hole rims. See here for some reference.

    Thanks for the info, I'm definitely going 36, x3; and will probably go with the 14/15/14's; I'll keep y'all informed!
