I'm getting a set of wheels build up for a turner flux. The shop asked how much I weigh. I'm just curious what rider weight has to do with the build? I'm sure it is important but I assumed that intended use would have more to do with the build.

Can anyone enlighten me?

I would ask about riding style, too.

A lighter rider and/or a rider with a finesse type riding style can get away lighter rims, spokes and nipples than a heavy rider and/or a rider with a basher style.
