Shamal Weight Limit

I think I already know the answer, but am I too heavy for the old mid 90's 12 spoke version? I'm around 170/175 pounds.

This bike would just be for easy, occasional weekend rides.

Probably not but check them for cracks around the spoke holes.

I've had Shamals for the last 4 years and no worries. I weight 199. or 200.
