I purchased this bike last year and love it to death, so much easier to ride over my Trek Navigator, can easily ride more miles.
Problem came up when I was just unsure of the wheels, ended up putting less than 15 miles on the flat highway.
No issues, just realized that the front wheel was only 18 hole and rear 24 hole, I got nervous and thought I might have to buy some custom wheels before doing much riding.
I know the frame is rated at 300# but with it being a cyclocross, should be stout enough for me to ride it gently on the main roads until I get down to the 300# mark.
I am currently at 350, and hopefully by spring at 330 or less.
Here is my ride, do you feel its a safe ride or would you upgrade the tires and wheels. Does everything else seem to be safe? I was not trying to get something to race, but figured if it could be raced hard, should be heavy duty enough for easy going for a big guy.
