Used Giant OCR1

I am looking at a used Giant OCR1 on ebay. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=220222856756

If was wondering if anyone has a clue what year this bike is? The serial number is GS306196.

Also, I am still 289 pounds although the weight is slowly but surely coming off. Based on your experience, would my weight totally destroy those rims?

No. Unfortunately, someone else bought it while I was thinking about it.
