I've got a couple more pairs of wheels ready to roll.  Price per set $425.

These are H plus Son Hydra rims, available in two colors, anodized black or anodized gray.  I have one pair of each.

These are 24/28h and I am going to give them a 190 lb. rider limit.  They are built with double butted Wheelsmith spokes, and Powerway (Edge branded) hubs.

Powerway hubs are a great value, and come with Enduro bearings standard.  The 4 pawl freehubs is well built as well.

The hubs are 11 speed compatible, and convertible.  I have all the end caps and will switch and ship you what you need.  Front will fit QR, 12, and 15mm.  Rear will go QR and 12x142mm.  If needed, add-on tubeless valves and skewers are available.  Wheel will come taped, and ready for tubed or tubeless use.

You can PM me directly here.  I'm also available through my FB page, see below. IMG_20170701_072441963.jpg  IMG_20170701_072452568.jpg  IMG_20170720_091633455.jpg  IMG_20170720_091643971.jpg  IMG_20170720_091703650.jpg

I have been running a pair of Hydra wheels since March.  Tubeless.  They are performing great.  I'm going to update my tires soon, to Gravel King SK 35c.  Tubeless, of course.

Dimensions are 19.5mm and 24.5mm, internal and external width respectively.  They are sweet!

I weigh 260lbs.  Down about 30 lbs since Jan and still going down slowly.  How would you compare the Hydra vs HED Plus Belgians?  I am assuming 32/32.  I have a Fuji Jari and a Trek Domane, both run 12mm thru axle.

thanks!

I would say the hydra rims are pretty comparable to Hed Plus.  Weights are the same.  These pairs are built light, though.  24/28h.

As usual I'm late to the party. But Soonerinfrisco, you should definitely talk to Oleritter. I'm at 270 pounds myself, and he built up a set of wheels for me using the Hydra rims. We made some choices to ensure they could handle my weight, so they certainly didn't come out ultra-lightweight. But that's not what I was going for. I wanted to know I could depend on the wheels when I'm 40 miles out from nowhere, and that's what I got. 
The Hydras have been rock solid. And they're sexy looking, to boot.
