I weigh 225lbs and have sometimes carried as much as 35lbs of gear+food+water. Bike weighs 40lbs (Surly LHT with fenders and racks), so total about 300lbs. Wheels are 26" made from Shimano Deore hubs, 32 hole rims, and plain 2mm spokes. I have never broken a spoke or rim on thousands of miles of riding both on and off-road.
