    you will be fine on them. the rim it self can take a huge beating. i havent had to true mine once this summer and i have been riding very rocky dh every weekend. i dont even have a loose spoke. the hubs are no hadleys or hopes but for a pre built rim they do a great job.

    I ran mine for almost 18 months before it developed bearing issues front and back. But it's pretty easy and cheap to fix. Heavy rims, but has lived through what I dished out.

    I am 200lb and Ive beaten my Outlaws to *****, have done nose-cases, rear-cases, rough rock gardens; worst thing that has happened, is my rear got out of true.


    I'm also calling B.S. on the 7ft claim too...

    Ive had both the mtx 33 and the outlaws (36 and 32 hole) and I would go with the mtx. They've been able to handle more abuse than my outlaws could.

    I'm 225 and rode these on my HT Dirt jumper - held up great, only trued once after riding drops/jumps of all sizes in 3x years. Great value

    I got a pair of the Outlaws for my first DH(ish) bike and they are tough. Just be vigilant about checking spoke tension, especially at your size. A loose spoke or two can lead to a flat spot pretty quickly.

    LOL...wish I was only 6'4"! would make getting bike stuff a lot easier. I actually do have a burly 29er...that bike in the pic is a Ventana el Cap 29er with a 25.4 inch seat tube. Just wanted more travel for more aggressive riding, so doing the Kona Coilair also for now.

    7', 255? i think the celtics have a spot for you!

    either option would be good but id lean a bit more toward sun ringle.

    Easily the best wheels I've ever had... and I've had most of them, including the mtx.
