Looking to build up a dynamo equipped wheelset for my touring bike and I can't decide on rims. There's plenty of bombproof options around, but I'm wondering if most of them aren't over-egging it.
I regularly see posts from clydes weighing 220 pounds (or more) espousing the strength of Open Pros. Given I only weigh 180 I figure I would have a bit of breathing room in terms of luggage.
I have that would be mostly described as ultralight gear, and I can't see wanting more than 20 pounds on the rear (I prefer putting as much up front anyways).
So, now's your chance to convince me the weight of something like A719s are worth it.
