    Need heavy duty 650 rim, what is good for rear.

    I want to run a 650 rim in rear and run 29 MTX 33 now. I really like the MTX 33 but want to do 650 on rear so what should be as good as my 33's ?, Thanks for any help. I am 300 pounds.

    I've been rolling Velocity P35 650s on my Heckler for 2 years now with very good results!

    I can't speak for them compared to the MTX, having never ridden them. But I am a heavier rider than you and my P35s have taken everything i've thrown at them!
