I picked up my beautiful new Specialized Dolce Elite today! Hurrah!
Then I read the manual, and saw that any carbon, weight bearing components have a weight limit of 240lb or 109kg. I currently weigh 115kg. Eek. And the seat post and possibly other bits are carbon - but not the frame!!
I'm a little annoyed, as I researched this before buying this bike. The weight limits table lists the limit as 275lb, or 125kg, so I thought I was fine. But this is the first I've seen of weight limits on carbon components.
I had assumed that since the bike comes with a carbon seat post as standard, that would be taken into account in the total bike weight limit? But apparently not.
Anyway, I'm not terribly over the limit - just 6kg. Do I need to wait until I lose 6kg to ride my beauty? (Though I did ride her home from the LBS today...)
Any advice will be much appreciated!!
