    32h vs. 36h rims/hubs & Flow vs. Arch

    How does one decide which to build with? Is it simply weight dependent? If so, what is the threshold? Or is it dependent on your riding style? Do only DH's need 36h's?

    I weigh ~205 #'s with all my equipment on and do mostly singletrack/XC.

    With my weight and riding style would you recommend stans flow or arch rims?

    Thank you in advance.

    I have the 32h arch rims on my 29er. It is a single speed and I ride it full rigid. Hasn't been a problem for me. I weigh 190-195 before I load up my camelbak.

    I run HALO SAS they say in the paperwork "36 hole front to save weight" 48h rear and are considered indestructable but it all depends on how you intend to use them more holes tend to be more rugged but add weight so thats the choice strength vs weight. you decide whats best for your riding, xc would tend to be lower weight wheels
