Bikes: I have a custom 2006 Zinn magnesium frame road bike set up for triathlon and a big semi-custom touring bike, the frame of which is a 1983 Apollo Prestige XL.

Strongest touring rim 40h 700c

Yeah, I need recommendations for a new rear rim. I want to build up a 4x on straight 14 g spokes or 2mm whatever,

I had a Velocity Dyad on there before and was running a 700x35 Schwalbe marathon XR at 85psi (biggest tire I can fit in there) I do paved roads and logging roads but the high pressure necessary to avoid direct rim impacts also split the wheel apart when I hit a large object on tour recently so I want something tougher this time. I don't care if the rim weighs 5 lbs if it'll stand up to serious abuse.

Fire away!
