    6'1" 375lbs

    New to this forum. Does anyone know if the cannondale trail sl 29er 6 would be a good choice for someone 6'1" 375lbs? Looking for something for road rides and the occasional mild off-road. Thanks

    The fork will be like a wet noodle under your weight. Otherwise, the rest of the bike should be ok. You can lock it out I'm sure and basically turn it into a rigid fork which will help but at that price point, it'll still probably have thinner stanchions which will make for a lot of flex.

    If you can, try to find something that has an air fork and thicker stanchions...30+mm, or upgrade the fork on the Trail 6 when you can by using the Suntour loyalty program which allows you to upgrade the stock for to a better fork for not a lot of money.
