tell us the brand, if you want our advice otherwise ur question is meaningless.links0311 said:The lower spoke count wasn't to increase my speed, way to ASSume grumpy. A friend of mine has offered me a set of 700c wheels to replace my 27" wheels, but they have a lower spoke count. I asked you guys to see if it would work safely.
I weigh the same and use CXP33 rims with 32 front and 36 rear, 3x with brass nips and Record hubs--have had to rebuild the rear 2 times now (in about 7 years). Front is still good as new. Last rebuild they tied and soldered...stiffest wheel I've ever ridden.links0311 said:What's the min. number of spokes I should have on each wheel for a 200lb rider? I am thinking about upgrading wheels and going from 32 spokes to around 20. Will that be enough? I mostly do paved trail rides with an occasional charity ride.
