    I weigh 270 and don't "unweight" my frame much. The wheels I currently have seem to take it fine. I do tend towards tires with more supple sidewalls and less flat protection and I don't think...

    You can head up the road a bit to Chappell Hill, there's more hills up that way. Chappell Hill to Washington on the Brazos and back is a nice ride. Or at least used to be, it's been a few years.
