I new to the forum and new to the mnt bike world. I have been reading and searching allot the last few day. I'm impressed with all the success story's I have read about weight loss. I am very interested in getting started and have a few questions.
Im not sure if I need a medium or large frame bike? I am 5'11" and about 310lbs, I have a 30" inseam. I am looking at the Trek Mamba as a first bike. I have read that the brakes are not the greatest but what im wondering, is with a rider as heavy as I am, are the fork sufficient? Is there another bike I should consider more?
I like the Trek fuel also but i'd rather not spend that much cash on a first bike. I'd like to stay in the 1000 to 1200 range if possible since i need to buy gear as well.
Any info would be great. Ohh and i am going to be riding flat trails most of the time with a little downhill and a little distance as well.
