Hi Shelby,

The Wooden Kart should hold 200 pounds (90kg). The axles would hold OK. 
You would want to make sure you have strong wheels. Spoked wheels of a 
bicycle may not be strong enough. With hard cornering and 200 pounds the 
spokes loosened on one of my wooden karts.

If you look at the axle assembly of the wooden kart, 
there is little cantilevering of the metal axle, as the wooden Axle 
Support surrounds the axle.

Best of luck,
