I ride pretty rough rural roads. I'm 195 and have had these results with variour rims:

CXP 33 32-spoke (machine built wheel): Eventual cracks around several spokes (rear wheel)

Open Pro 32-spoke (hand built) - dented sidewall, flexy on big hits like potholes

A 719 36-spoke (hand built) - bulletproof and will take 28mm and up.

Heard good things about Velocity's designed for touring
