    90-100mm rims that are durable

    Has anyone 250lbs( I'm 300) or more had any luck with fat bike rims from Whisky or Nextie? I am looking to have some wheels built up for my fatty, and I can't seem to find any reliable info as to durability.

    The rims do not need to be carbon, but I am not opposed to space plastic either. I currently have only been riding mulefuts 80 SL, and they hold up ok, novatech hubs, not so much.

    Thanks in advance

    I'm currently 265 and I have a set of Clownshoes I laces up in like 2012 or 13. I've built Nexties for customers but haven't ridden them myself. Probably be fine for you. Doesn't Whiskey have no weight limit?

    I'm currently trying to get my hands on some Alex Blizzerks in 90mm to try out but not having any luck.

    I'm 215 fully loaded and have had no issues with my Sarma rims. I broke an Onyx rear hub but my front Paul one is holding up fine.

    going to be a mixed bag here... i am on one end of the spectrum, and break a carbon wheels just by looking at them. Then there are others here that say they never had a problem, and they use their nexties on their SUV when they have a flat with no issues...

    mulefuts are great. Alex Blizzerk 90 or 100's are even better, and personally my only option regarding a fatter hoop that as durable or better than the mulefut.

    Good luck!
