Hi guys, I've recently purchased a Trek Procaliber 6. As I'm approx 310lb I thought it would be worth selling on the lightweight wheels that came with it and have some heavier duty wheels made up.

Having done a small amount of research, I was thinking that the 32h Stans Arch Mk3 with Hope hubs would be OK. Not too heavy but apparently a very strong combo.

What do you think? Would you recommend anything else?

Thanks as always. D

I have a Trek 29er and used to break a spoke every few rides. I had a wheel built using a Mavic 319 rim with 36 spokes and haven’t broken a spoke since. Cost me just over £100 a couple of years ago but well worth it when a shop will charge around the £15 mark to renew 1 spoke.
Can’t recommend it enough, well worth the spend.
