I've been riding my mountain bike regularly for 3 months now and would like to consider the move to a road bike. My concerns are about a bike that will handle my weight. I've already bent a wheel on my MTB and don't want that to happen on a new bike. I mainly ride a local paved trail that is mostly flat but does have some hills that kick my butt. I'm also trying to rehab an injured knee so most of my time is in the seat. I am hoping to be ready to ride my first century by next June and would like to do it on the new bike.
I appreciate any feedback.
Thank you for your time,
