    Rush wheelset (XM819 24 spoke)

    My LBS has a Rush on sale. It sure is a nice ride, but I'm a bit worried about the wheels on it. It has DT Swiss hubs and Mavic XM819 rims, but only 24 spokes! Would these wheels be strong enough for my 80kg (175lbs)?

    I use those exact same wheels on my Prophet with 8 inch Hayes Mags...

    Yes for me.

    I have a Rush and weigh 190 and ride through serious rocks. I have 819s just like you describe which I use in the winter with studded tires. I did break a spoke last year and these not super light, but they have taken abuse.

    The 2008 Cannondale Catalog specs 24 hole rims on the Prophet 2. The spec rims are DT Swiss XR 4.2D Disc but if those are good enough then the Mavic 819's are definitely fine.
