    Offseason HT Clyde build

    I'm building my new HT over the winter. I am 6'4" 280lbs.. I have an Orbea Carbon fiber Frame. It's weighing in at 3.2lbs. Figured I would ask all you big guys if my build list needs any changing? I want if to hold up under me. The only weak spot I might have is my wheelset. Any opinions are greatly appreciated.

    Thanks guys

    The flow rim is a good one. I've put many a larger customer on that rim.

    What spoke count did you go with?

    Yes. Do 32.

    I'm a 300+ rider and I did 32 on my rear wheel and 28 on my front (I got the front hub used from a co-worker back in 08). 3x lacing with DT champion spokes and they are holding up great. I'm using 240s hubs and DT400xr rims. Not as stout of a rim as you are using and I do wish I had picked a wider rim. But that will be next time.

    Agreed,

    Those DT XR400's want hold up to that weight and any amount of abuse. My SB95 came with a set (w/DT 350's) and I tweeked the front rim in just 15 miles...I weigh less @275lbs. So I installed a set of Stan's Flow EX wheels. The Stan's wheels are much wider/beefier and adds a little weight but it's well worth it.

    Build looks great. There's only one thing that confuses me, when is there an offseason? Ride all year
