I ride a full carbon Trek Madone 5.9
I'm 6'3" and 240 (down from 265) and ride a full OCLV 110 carbon Trek Madone. It's a $5000 bike I bought off ebay for about $2,000. It has the stock Bontrager Race Lite wheels, even though I expected them to not be great, and I've had no problem with them in about a thousand miles of riding this year. I ride hilly terrain in New Hampshire.
I don't think the frame material will be an issue. Make sure you get sturdy wheels.
