First off, I'm 320 lbs.
I'm rebuilding an old Raleigh Sports with a 2030 high-tensile steel frame, rather than chrome-moly. I had to cold-set both front and rear drop-outs to accommodate new wheels. What worries me is that cold-setting the frame and fork was much easier than I thought it would be (though I admit to being something of a gorilla), and this leads me to question whether the frame will be able to handle my weight without damage.
Any thoughts or observations? If I need to bench the bike until I can lose a decent amount of weight, so be it...I just don't want to damage it.
