CXP33 for a Clysdale.(5 posts)

CXP33 for a Clysdale.SlowPokey

Reading the posts around here, eveyone is suggesting a box rim like open 4's.

Are Cxp33's too stiff? I'm a 210 lb. clysdale who wants a rim that can handle my weight.


My wheels are 3x (12 spoke...kidding) 32 spoke with 14/15/14.


CXPs work fine for me, and I'm bigger than you... (nm)The Walrus

I'm 210lbs, (well more like 225 in winter)
if you're really have concerns, try velocity deep V's
i train on them in summer for the road and race them in winter off the road
32 front, 36 rear 2x cross straight gauge spokes
two years and everytime i ask the team mechanic to check them out, he asks me to stop wasting him time
What hubs are you using?arctic hawk

My front hubs are nearly finished & will likely have to be replaced during the off season, possibly even before.
Which hubs are you using with your velocity's?

not as narrow of a tire bed in the box. Not as deep as the deep vee but wider at the bead. Another good choice if you like bigger tires.
