Looking some advice on rims/tires.
First off hello
I finally started my new lifestyle this morning. I am very happy about it. I am currently 5'11" and 250lbs which I hoping to change through the magic of diet and cycling.
Almost as if the universe is giving a sign I was looking for a new bike to help this process and oddly enough I got one from my brother for xmas (in January). The bike is a 2013 Kona Sutra (c56) which is a great bike and as I observed expensive.
My current delima is however regarding the rims/tires which are the stand ones Kona use. The tires are: Continental Contact 700x32C and the rims are: Freedom by WTB Ryder 21.
I was wondering if other new if these would hold my weight or would I risk damaging them? The reason I ask is because the back tire tends to compress a decent amount when I am not moving and it has me concerned that I need to get different rims and/or tires too be able to use this fantastic bike
I have thought of increasing the pressure in the tires but I am again caustious not to risk damage to the bike.
If anyone has any advice of this stuff it woudl be greatly appreciated
