Quick question

Hey all! Will a Trek 7.3 fx handle the weight of a 240 lb. person ok? I really don't want to have any spoke or other issues. I couldnt find what the max this bike could carry and I forgot to ask my lbs guy.

You shouldn't have any issue. I weigh that and ride a 1.5 that has the same wheel and frame set.
