Will my new bike support my weight?
I bought a new Bella Ciao, and I weigh almost 200 lbs. The bike's frame is a hand-built, fully lugged step-through design made of Columbus tubing with aluminum alloy wheels. She weighs in at 31 lbs. It has a Brooks B67S saddle. The bike is still en route to her new home, and I am worried about its being strong enough for me at my present weight. Any comments from those who know will be appreciated very much. How I hope that I won't have to park the bike until I lose 50 lbs! Well, I could always ride the DL-1 until I do...so things could be worse
