Anyone have any thoughts about whether as a heavier rider (a beefy 16.5st) should stay away from carbon or not? I've had a few sobering lessons with mtb components recently (a saddle and some crank brothers pedals) that were clearly not suited to someone with a bit of extra beef and I was wondering if I should have the same consideration with a road bike and its components?

On the same topic does anyone have any thoughts about the orbea aqua? I know their orca frame's supposed to be amazing but on the basis I don't have 2.5k to blow on this i would appreciate your thoughts.
