will a 16/20 set of 2008 DV46 be safe for a 185 lbs rider?
i have an opportunity to get a set for a great deal, but, i am a little concerned with the spoke count. i know i will be safer with 20/24, but, they do not have that set up available.
While the DV46 rims are pretty tough, 16/20 seems on the light end, for anything but race day use. I personally would not want these as an everyday set and I am 155-160lbs. I have a set of DV46s in 20/24 and even then they are a tad flexy for me.
thank you guys. i suspected that, but,, the shop selling them did not seem to really care about this issue. that is why i posted here so i can get some sense talked into me. it was a really good deal, but, not for me.
