Anyone using discbrakes?
If so, what kind of rims?

Have been thinking about Openpro, but some people says these are not strong enought.

I am a 195 pound guy.

One set is XT with Open Pro. Other is Magura Pro with Open Pro rims. Don't race CX, but 200 lbs and not easy on wheels. - TF

All I use on the road are Open Pros. CX bike and everyday road bike both have disc brakes. I have bent one OP rim when I hit a pot hole. I still use the rim, though, on my beater bike. - TF

O/P's should be okay. A great combo though is Velocity Aerohead front,Fusion rear. great in sand and mud and big guy abuser friendly
