    Hi I'm just wondering, I'm a bit heavy at 220 pounds and I need a bombproof back rim without breaking the bank. I live in alberta canada I have the gta5 66 cc bike and it's great. I have a kind of triangular shaped rigida brand rim right now but I need a second rim I had a x-rims rim but it was crap. Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks

    the main criteria in my experience are

    tight spokes!

    properly inflated tyres!

    other than smacking into hard objects with corners at speed, such as curbs or bricks, the main strength of a bike wheel is IN THE SPOKES.

    keep em tight ;)

    flat, under-inflated tyres do nothing but dent rims, pinch tubes, waste power, and go slow.
