I'm 6'3" tall, weigh 240 lbs and I am hard on bikes since I sometimes climb standing and I tend to mash gears. Right now I am looking at the Rivendell Atlantis, the BG Rock and Road (with Bruce's upgrade for heavy riders) or an Independent Fab Independence (they also will size and stiffen for my needs.)
I am interested in folks comments on these frame choices, and also on any components they know they would hang on a bike that's going to be used this way. I am leaning towards Phil for hubs and BB, not sure about other parts. Comments?
