I am 6'2 and 320lbs. The last bike i had was a cheap full suspension and it bottomed out and the frame BUCKLED! To be fair i came off a massive hidden drop off - 10ft or so. I hurt myself a bit but not as much as the bike!
So the question is, full suspension or hard-tail?
Im looking to spend around £1000... probably stretch to £1400 if there was something really worth getting.
To give you an idea of how much, a Kona Hoss Deluxe is £850 and Kona Dawg Deluxe is £1500.
Considering up at the top end of the scale in terms of weight - im thinking a hard-tail is going to be better value for money. for £1000 i can get some good equip and a strong frame. However for the same money im gonna end up with a rubbish FSR that i will probably destroy?
So do i go for the £850 kona hoss deluxe (probably upgrade the rims/tyres..) or splash out and get something like a Kona Dawg Deluxe?
I like fast trail riding, cross country sort of stuff.
