As one, I would like to disagree with the posting saying that double butted spokes are unnecessary for those of use who are full figured guys and gals. The advantage of DB spokes is not weight saving, but greater flexibility. All other things being equal, DB spokes will last longer because they are more able to flex under the pounding of poundage.
