Wow, that Forza should be good for what you want. Get a tougher back wheel, one with 36 spokes, from somebody like PSIMET psimet.com. A quality wheel, built by a quality builder, with 36 spokes should be almost bombproof.
Will wider tires fit on the Forza? Some 40's or even 45s?
A heavier duty wheel, with tough tires like Schwalbe Marathons, or Marathon Supremes, should even navigate Detroit.....
And why the disc brakes? Do you do a lot of rain riding? V-brakes, with Kool Stop Salmon Pads are awesome, even when wet, and MUCH lighter.....
