Anyone using them for Cyclocross? I am considering them but I weigh 190lbs and I have some concerns over whether they can handle my weight off road!

Thanks
Steve

Don't think that they will last too long.
The rims are Open Pros...TFerguson

so if you would spec an OP, they're fine. The spokes are conventional at the rim end so trueing, etc. is same as normal. They are straight at the hub end so the elbow, probably the weakest part, doesn't exist. That may compensate for the low 24 and 28 spoke count. Though the front is radial, the hub should be fine since it is desighned that way from scratch.

I also weigh 190 and use them for some pretty rough road riding without problems. I don't think that I would buy them for CX, but if I had a spair pair...
