i dunno what the other guys ride, but at 17.5 stone, my 25s are 120psi and my 28s are at least 110. mavic ksyrium elite wheels. they look spindly, but mavics are pretty burly.
there is a "fat guy on a light bike" thread/flame battle you might want to look at. light doesnt always mean weak, but it usually means expensive. the only reason my bike is approaching light, is because i get a pretty good hookup on the stuff. light weight was a byproduct, not a goal.
btw, 20lbs is pretty damn light and its reasonably inexpensive to purchase a bike these days, compared to 15 years ago, whe 20lbs would cost an arm and a leg, which by the way would have gotten you under clydesdale weight.
