    Tandem rim choices

    Our team weighs less than 300 lbs (near 290). I'm looking for a new rim to widen my choices for tyres (I want to use 700x23 or 25c tyres). What are my choices?

    I'm a big fan of DT Swiss parts and Campagnolo wheels. We currently ride on 36H Velocity Dyads 18x622 ETRTO. The rim has to have 36 hole capacity.

    I just finished building my second set of DT Swiss 1.1(front) and 1.2(rear) on White Ind hubs for our new tandem. It's a complete Campy bike as well.
    Previously we had a set of disc compatible DTSwiss on Wht Ind hubs which were great as well.

    This set is a 32h build and weighs 1812gr w/rim strips.

    I also race DTs on one of my singles and have never had a problem.

    Got 18,000+ miles on a pair of Velocity Aeroheads (32H x 36H) with DT Revolution spokes, King hubs.
    Run 25mm Maxxis Re-Fuse tires and have run 23mm. Our team weight is just below 250.
    One minor issue: Broke one spoke nipple (alloy) on front wheel after almost 18K miles.
