Shimano RS81 with a 240lb ride?
Hi all - first post here so go easy
I am currently a 5' 8" 240lb rider in my early 30's. I am lucky (I suppose) as a reasonable amount of my weight is muscle, but obviously I want to lose dome load, do I have got back into road cycling with my mates.
In about 4 months I want to lose about 2 stone and reward my self with a Planet X ultegra 6800 rt-58 which I will use for getting into sportives and doing 100 mile tours with friends (at moment) we do around 40 mile trips. All is going well but when I get this new bike I am keen to get something good and I was looking at the Shimano RS81s. Would such a wheel set in conjunction with some 25mm Vittoria Open Pave Evo CG folding tyres be ok for someone my weight (maybe even 200lbs at that stage, but let's assume my current weight). I am looking for something fairly speedy and hard wearing.
Think I am pushing my luck on my current wheels and bike (23mm)
