    Buy a good bike from a good bike shop. Double wall rims and good tires. I'm around 300 lbs with 50 lbs of gear touring England. I was troubled by broken spokes. A retired bike engineer told me to put small washers under the head of my spokes. Problem solved. This moves the shoulder of the spoke closer to the hub and supports the bend. Get wheels with more spokes if you can find them. Like off a tandem bike 36 vs 32. High tire pressures will add life to your tires. I think it is the the fault of the Pubs but after three 6 month cycle trips to the UK I'm in much better shape but haven't lost much weight. But, it is a fun life.

    eems like 300 lbs is the limit depending on how many spokes are in the wheel. 36 spokes is what they are talking about here.

    I"M DONE [​IMG] ended up with a pumpkin total of endout for 28 pies and 28 cups of plain pumpkin for breads or bars or cake. Labeled and in freezer in garage. Friday's is in the baking and vegie freezer in basement. next to bedroom. All the dishes and pans got a good scrub. Kitchen cleaned up.

    Red how about drill a hole thru 2 legs , running axel thru and them maybe a couple of those car donut spares for tires, should roll good. but turning might be a *****.
