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.

I'm going to go with the worksman wheels I'm sure. As for the frame, I have a two-nine genesis shimano frame. I have it in stock. Thanks for your suggestions guys. And the link! I'm getting her in here soon for a mock up fitting to see if this style and size bike are what she needs.

Thanks again.

I look forward to the day someone commissions a felt, alas this is not that build.
