The only thing to be concerned about is good strong wheels with plenty of spokes, and even then only the rear. 36 spokes = no worry. 32 spokes, you're in good shape, for peace of mind it's worth $30-40 to have a local wheelbuilder go over it to make sure it's properly tensioned. 28 or less, you better have it built by the best wheelbuilder in town and ride it carefully!

Trek 7.2 FX, a favorite sport hybrid recommendation for most riders.
