    Clyde worthy 29er Rims?

    Hello all, I know there is is a couple of threads about clyde worthy wheels, but I wanted to be more specific and find out what guys are using for their 29ers. I have a Stumpjumper FSR Comp 29er and the OEM wheelset is not clyde worthy at all. I'm 6'6 320lbs

    Thanks for any help in advance!!

    Thanks, I was looking at Stans ZTR Flow or Velocity Blunt rims. I'm just not sure of the durability of these two rims.

    I'm 205 lbs and have found Stan's Flow rims to be indestructable.

    +2 on the Stans Flows!!!

    Been riding them for over six months at 300lbs 'ish. I picked up the set with X9 hubs from Universal for $350...looks like the price went up a little since then.

    I ride an FSR 29er. When I weighed 288, I also found the rims that came on the bike under par. I currently run Salsa Semis with 32 spokes on the hubs that came on the bike. I also got a set of Gordos with 36 spokes that I also like very much. Only drawback is I built them with Shimano XT hubs and I ruined the rear one once already. I'm going to redo the rear wheel with a Hadley when I need it.
    IMO, the Salsa rims kick ass.

    I have Stan's ZTR Flows on Industry 9 Enduro Hubs. I'm sure Chris King would make some very strong hubs that would suit you.

    Salsa Gordo

    Cant recommend these enough. Burly rim that takes wider tires.

    Sun Ringle MTX 33's, probably the most burly 29er rim you can buy.

    +1. started at 245 and am down to 215, and have had absolutely no issues with my Flows laced to Hope Pro2 hubs built by mikesee. 3+ years and only recently needed to true the rear wheel. Was able to recently convert my hubs from 9mm QR to 15mm TA as well with no issues.
