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

get a more veed rim for your size. CXP33, Velocity Aerohead or deep Vee. They will last you longer and need less truing

i use these wheels mainly for commuting but occasionally ride singletrack and fireroads. If i was riding off road alot i'd be looking at something more rigid in the rim dept.
