I just wanted to get some feeback from anyone who has had experience with both of these rims in regards to spoke count. I am building up a custom wheelset as an all rounder with White Ind H2 hubs and Kinlin Niobium clincher rims. I am 190 lbs, 188cm tall and do about 300k a week.

My question is the durability of the 27mm over the 30mm. I was first looking at the 30mm with a 24/28 2 cross all round. I like the look of the 27mm rims with the added benefit of saving some valuable grams but should I up the spoke count?

Cheers

Both rims are fine. The 27s are a little wider... which is nice. If you use heavier spokes (2.0/1.7-1.8mm) on the DS rear (at least), then 24f and 28r should be ok.

Your body weighs over 86,000 grams... so keep this in mind while sweating 40g on your wheels.
