Most vendors will tell you there products have no weight limit.. Then of course when you start popping spokes or cracking rims, the shop will tell it is because these wheels were made for someone 180lbs or less..

I think the shop was looking out for you, most likely from previous experience.. A sub 1500 gram wheelset for a 250+ clyde is right on the edge.. What wheels were they trying to upgrade you too?
