i'm about to confirm payment on a deal i caught in Chainlove on a 2010 Meta 5.5 Carbon with an RP23 for $699 as it's cheap as hell. but i'm having second thoughts as it may be too little for my weight and style of riding. i am 270lbs and though i don't do more than 4' of drops, i am not gentle with my bike. i am hoping to replace my ol' Uzzi VPX with the Meta for a lighter setup and a little more gap between my other bike (DHR). so i guess the question is, can it handle Clydesdale-abuse?
EDIT: another concern is the minimal fork options for it's straight 1-1/8" head tube, most of the forks i've been looking at seem to be available with tapered steerers only.
