I agree. 245 is no problem for virtually any bike out there today. I try to ride mine "light" because my wheels are cheap and this bike is new to me, so I'm not sure how well they'll put up with my 235 lbs. So far, so good! By light, I mean avoid big potholes and try to "unload" my weight as I go over bumps and through dips. Also, make sure the tires are aired up well before EVERY ride. At our weights, we do have to watch pinch-flats.
If at first you don't succeed, Skydiving is not the sport for you!
