I am looking at building a wheelset, and wanted to know if cxp-33 and 105 hubset will work for me. It would be 32 spoke and 3x. My weight is 260 lbs and I sometimes mash but am trying to get better at my spin. Would that work or should I look at 36 spoke only? Also is the 105 durable or should I look at ultegra to last longer? Any recomendations on what spokes?

|That wheelset should be fine if:
- it's built by a good wheelbuilder
- use 14ga spokes with brass nipples
- use a three-cross pattern
I wouldn't worry about mash vs. spin... More important to dodge potholes and pavement imperfections. Also using a 28c tire will help your wheels last longer.
