    American Classic 420 blade wheelset

    I have heard that this wheelset is a not strong enough for a rider of my weight and ability. i am pretty hard on my bike and i weigh about 210 lbs. this would be ridden strictly on the track.

    anyone know or hear about this wheelset not being strong enough for a rider at 210 lbs??

    thanks for your help.

    The 420's with bladed spokes have a weight limit of 225 lbs. I weigh 230-235 and I run a set on my Litespeed Ultimate. I've put 4,000km on them and broke one spoke going over rail road tracks. I find them stiff and they accelerate well.
