Best Urban/path Bike For Heavy Riders

Postby Bigburt on Sat 16/Oct/21 12:11am

Hi Team,

I'm a bit of a giant weighing in at 139 Kgs and standing at 197cm or 6'5" in old money.
I've already lost 10 Kgs and am looking at getting into bike riding for fitness. It seems nearly impossible to find a descent bike for a big fella. I don't wanna be buckling wheels and pinging spokes on the regular.
I'm also on a bit of a budget as this is more of a fitness thing, rather than serious bike riding.
Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Nick

Hey Nick

Not much of an expert, but my neighbour is of similar proportions to you, and rides a steel surly trucker absolutely everywhere. Probably a bit more spendy than you'd want to commit to, but seems to be bulletproof.
