    Advice on a build b4 I pull the trigger

    Hello everyone,
    Heres my plan: Chris King hubs laced to Mavic 819 with dt swiss spokes. (red hubs and nips)

    Strength is very important to me as I am 255lbs but I didnt want to get downhill spec stuff for a xc/am rig. Am I on the right track?

    Also straight or butted spokes?

    Plenty strong, go with Wheelsmith DB14 or DT Competition butted spokes.

    i pretty much have the same: King to 819s with DT comps and alloy nips.

    they were built up by Colo Cyclist and have taken a beating. i'm 225 RTR and ride a HT with 100mm of front...pretty aggressive XC for my area.
