Default Re: heavy riders

You also want to make sure you have a cromolly axle in your rear hub. 12 gauge or larger spokes on two inch wide tires. In Tennessee where I live the law is 30 mph on level ground. From what I read in Virginia's laws its 35 mph on incline, level or decline ground. So you'll need a really good breaking system to stay under 35 mph going downhill. You can get a speedometer cheap at Walmart.
