I'm thinking about trading my Trek FX 7.2 in on a road bike. I literally know nothing about road bikes. And have only been riding cruisers about 1200 miles so far since starting riding 3 months ago.
I ride my other hybrid between 100-140 miles a week. The bike trail is starting to feel a little small and I'm thinking about doing some longer/faster rides out on paved country roads near my house. It seems like a true road bike would be more appropriate for that.
That said, I'm 6'1" and currently 325lbs and dropping slowly now. I've had some history breaking spokes on stock hybrid rear wheels. 32 spoke rims with 700x35 tires. I'm wondering if it's possible to effectively go to a road bike at my size. I've heard the Cyclocross bikes are supposed to be more sturdy and thought that might be a possibility.
The dealers in my area carrying Trek and Specialized, so those are likely the brands I will be choosing from.
