I ride a CAAD10. I was over 300lbs when I got it. I'm about 260lbs now. Never had any issues with the bike, but I did build better wheels after breaking a few spokes.

I'm pretty new to the sport, but I've really been digging it the last year or so. I'm horrible and I usually don't bother keeping score and I lose about 10 balls over 18 holes, but it's fun!

More power to you if you can get away with it. Personally, I was riding some low spoke wheels and they were fine for about 2000 miles. Then I started breaking spokes left and right.

My first road bike was a Cannondale CAAD9. At the time I was about 340lbs. It's a little more towards the "race" side geometry wise, but I liked it. I liked it so much in fact I decided to bump it...
