Recommendations on a tough wheelset for my Big Dummy.
I am hoping to get some help on what types of wheels Big Dummy or Xtracycle riders have used that are durable.
I am running some no name XC wheels now just to get me rolling but am wanting something that can that can take the load of a cargo bike where I don't have to worry about the wheels being the weak point.
Currently I am running 26x2.4 Holy Rollers, but I'd like to save them for winter and use 2.5" Hookworms for the summer.
This may sounds a bit out there but I came across a set of center drilled 36h Large Marge's laced up to XT Disc hubs. I'd live to run these but I not sure I really want to cut off the Canti mounts for the 65mm wide rim to clear. The thought of a semi fat Big Dummy is intriguing to me.
I'm a noob so be gentle, I really appreciate the feedback.
