DT Swiss unveils hardwearing ‘Hybrid Utility’ wheels for e-bikes

Given the bike weight a typical design weight for a bike allows for a maximum of a 15 stone person. So a variety of people, from rugby players who are fit but heavy to overweight people encouraged to take up cycling, to the very tall may not realise they are riding bikes beyond their designed load capacity.

I regularly had to fix a rear wheel of a fellow club member who was about 6' 3" and carrying a goodly amount of personal baggage. The spoke nipples would come unscrewed. He couldn't understand why it felt like cycling through jelly when he rode.
