32H front, 250lb rider

Suicide? Discuss....

Will be used on my fix, tubular, not yet purchased. I'd prefer a 36, but if 32 would be just as good.....

450lb rider...32h front, never messed up......now the rear. I crushed the 36H rear in a matter of wheels, truing and spoke replacement weekly, so I opted for a 36H handbuilt which is going strong.

yes, amusingly my mountain wheels are the ones that have the 32H front. My road wheels have a 36H front.

If she is laced 3x then you should be fine. Most front wheels are stronger than rears due to being symetrical. Although your fixie should also have a symetrical rear wheel. But that's beside the point. You should be fine.

Amusingly since mine is a disc it's not...but it's still stout.
