I'm looking at building up a new wheelset for this upcoming season.  I've got the hubs and spokes sorted but I'm unsure on the rims.  Are the Stan's Alpha 340 rims strong enough or should I look for some 355 29er rims instead?


So far I've got this planned...

Chris King Classic cross hubs - 32/32h

Sapim CX-Rays 


Also most of my training occurs on singletrack so I'm leaning towards the 355 rims but Stan's sure thinks the Alpha 340 rims are strong enough.


Any and all input is greatly appreciated.  Thanks!!!

UCI rules only apply if you are doing the UCI elite race. If you are doing the cat 3, cat 4, etc race at let's say USGP, that tire rule does not apply to you
So does it not apply to Masters Nationals?   Masters  Worlds?  Thanks again.
