This is humor/observation I've been reading the posts in this forum and I have to ask how much of what I am reading is pure internet mythology and how much is true ? For example I'm close to 300lb, ride 60-100 miles a week on 23 mm tires on 20 spoke straight laced wheels on a bike with a carbon fork. I have over 1500 miles on the road bike this year on less than ideal roads, my typical cruising speed is around 19mph on crappy chip and seal roads. So far other than an initial truing my wheels have held up fine, the carbon fork has stayed intact, and the tires have not shreaded and disintegrated. Now I will admit I am probably shortening the life of some of my components, but by reading the posts in this forum I probably need to strip a harley frame buildup a crankset with industrial power transmission components and semi tractor trailer tires and rims.
PS: I guess what I am saying is ride more worry less, parts are going to break, there are no guarantees, all warranttees void, don't pass go, and the odds of dying a 1 to 1 so go ride and do the things you enjoy.
