    I keep breaking my rims!

    Hey Guys,

    What kind of wheel setup's is everyone riding? I need to find something that is practically bullet proof. Last summer, I think I went through 6 different rims. Let me know.

    Thanks in advance.

    Have you try Sun Rhyno Lite XL Rims w/ DT Swiss Champion Spoke??

    if you did, I think I'll have to reconsider getting those wheelsets

    Upgrade what you need, not what you Want.

    How much do you weigh?

    What type of riding are you doing?

    What is your wheelset (Rims, Spokes, Hub) that you keep breaking?

    Is your wheelbuilder really as good as they say they are?

    I'm running Sun Singletrack Rims, used to break spokes constantly until I upgraded to DT Swiss Champions w/brass nipples and haven't had a problem since. I do a pretty agressive all mountain riding and a little DH/Freeriding and it's been holding up just fine.
    Sometimes you have to take one for the team...
