Default Re: 250+ Lbs frame and wheels recommendations

I'm kinda siding with the people who recommend good steel frames. I've worked with and welded aluminum, and it can handle quite a bit. But we're looking at above-average weight and payload in addition to vibration. This is right up steel's alley.
And I love Worksman wheels; they're the greatest. You'd be glad you got 'em once you tried 'em. And a 52T (or bigger) sprocket will make the engine's life easier.
And I would also say try to find the best brakes you can afford. She'll thank you for that.
