I am a big guy (6'2" 220lbs.) and I need a REALLY durable set of all around wheels. What do you guys suggest??

I'm 6'4", 200 lb. and have used Classics Pro for 3 years. They have never required truing after over 10,000 miles. In fact, I'm getting ready to replace the rims with Open Pro's. A great wheelset. 2001 models are much more expensive as they are using the ceramic rims. Hope this helps

I have used classic pro wheels for two years and they have been bomb proof. I am no lightweight at 179lbs and the roads in upstate New York can be rough, especially early in the season. I have hit a couple monster holes that of course gave me a flat but I have yet to true them.

The rolf wheels are my pick, they are better at higher speeds,than climbing ,they may go out of true a bit but never out of round, I like the Mavic reflex 32 hole wheels for climbing. 6'6" 235 lb.
