Newbie here. First off before I ask the intended question I went all the way to page 5 (yup, hard working is what I am) to see if anyone had posted a similar question, but then I gave up and decided to search for it. But couldn't find the exact search box for this forum, so resorted to posting a new thread. OK, after that long winded introduction here is the long awaited question. It is to do with a bicycle (title gave that away I suppose). I did my first sprint triathlon on the 1st July on my mountain bike, which I have been using extensively on the roads. And as I have the bug and want to do more (have another one in August) am looking at different bikes, most probably a road bike. I have found a used specialized allez sport on ebaywhich looks quite good and am concidering taking a look at, but the advertiser states that he is selling, after having used it for 6 months, as he is above the max user weight of 16 stone. Now my question is, does this mean that this bike is one to avoid? With the max user weight having been surpassed would a bike like that bend? Or what? Sorry for making you read all this stuff, but thought the question needed some background to make sense.
