What is the best way to find out if desired weight for road bikes? I am 5’11 weight. I weigh 200 pounds. I’m interested in purchasing a cannondale caad8 105b with 25c tires.

I would like to know if 25c tires are ideal for somebody with my body frame or should I go bigger to 28c tires?

Opinions will vary. Personally, I like 28 for road and I'm really skinny. I like to be able to run a bit lower pressure and have a little bit of give in the tire for bumps.

Weight does not matter as much as bike design for example a Specialized Tarmac is more harsh to squeeze every once of performance out of it then a Specialized Roubaix
