    I too am a uberclyde, if that's what you call us. At 325. I settled on the 2011 Rockhopper Pro. I started with the comp. After 2 weeks I noticed the Suntour fork was not going to hold my weight. While at my LBS to ask about upgrading the fork, they mentioned the Recon on the Pro and offered to upgrade for me for $400. Sweet. Also, the wheelset on the pro is sooo much stronger. I had to tru the comp wheels twice. 150+ miles on the pro and they are still perfect. Hope this helps.
