I have had pedal issues in the past. Maybe some sort of reinforced pedal? Especially for the MTB.

I agree with whomever said they would like to see a product list with manufacturer's stated weight limits. There are a lot of products out there, including some that we as larger riders might not consider (like Cervelo frames) which have no mfr's limits, or high limits. Then again, there are some products which I would guess shouldn't have a weight limit (pedals, for example; since there's such a variable strain put on them even by smaller riders) which have toleraces of 175 pounds for certain models.

Quantitive data on grip of tires (coefficient of friction) on wet and dry roads. I havent seen this anywhere and is not solely of interest to clydesdales.

How would you test something like that without expensive, specialized equipment?
