    HD rim/spoke suggestions.

    Hi all. Im 6'4, & 370 or so. (Yeah hoping to loose some weight, but thats in the future) I ride on both pavement and some light trails. What I need to know is what would people suggest for a rim/spoke combo for me. Obviously I care not a whit about some extra weight. I currently ride a 26" wheelset from Specialized.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Porko.

    First, good name.
    Second, if weight isn't an issue, go with some sort of free ride or DH wheelset. There are a couple decent options for not a lot of green (Azonic Outlaws, etc...).

    For just generic spoke "advice": DT 14 gauge (or 2.0 as they are now called...) and *BRASS* nipples. Phill Wood spokes are sexy, but pricey.

    Brock...
    Are the wheels roundish? Ride it.
