Hi all... I'm currently at 308 lbs and I just purchased a new 2006 Trek 520 touring bike. I'm steadily losing weight (I was at 336 three months ago, goal weight is 200).
My question is, should I wait to ride this bike until I get below a certain weight threshold (like 250, 275 or so), or will a Trek 520 hold my current 308 lbs??? (the bike has a 21" frame with stock wheels).
I don't plan on doing any loaded touring with it until my weight is down below 240.
Thanks for any help you can offer!
