So, are the wheels Ok? Stay True??
If i buy a pair will i have a problem with my 193 lbs of weight??
PS: the spokes are 1.6-1.6-1.6???

|to answer your question, no, 15/16 butted spokes are not 16.-1.6-1.6. Personally, at 193, I'd go with 14/15s on the rear. The number of spokes is ok, but their a litle thin for my tastes.|

|yeah they've stayed true but i haven't ridden them all that much since they are my lightweight set. the spokes are 1.8/1.6. i weigh 180-182 and don't think that weight is an issue here, especially when you take into consideration that the wheels are hand built and pre-stressed. they also aren't terribly exotic, so they will be easy to take care off. i'll call 'em monday and check availabilty. email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org|| |
