I'm not that big. About 140. Would build them up w 32 hole hubs.
Also considering H+Son Archetypes. I think both of those are a little cheaper and a little lighter than DVs. That's pretty much where I'm coming from.
Archetypes are nice rims. I'm currently hovering over the submit order button on a set.
You are 140 lbs? Don't even worry about it. I'm 225lbs and curbs and gnarly **** aren't giving me any problems. I'm riding my Steamrollers Alex DA22, which are close to the same dimensions as the fusions (22mm deep, 14mm interior width vs. 25mm deep, 15mm interior width).
Long story short, if you like the Fusions, they are probably going to be a great rim for you. If you like the Archetypes, they will work well too. The Archetypes are said to feel better on fast corners due to their width. Same depth as the Fusions but wider (25mm deep, 23mm exterior width).
