    6'1 and 238 pounds. I just purchased a Diamondback Recoil 29er, which is being shipped. I hope its not a POS. I really need to start biking again to lose some pounds.

    The body mass index

    says that I am nearing obesity!!

    2013 Banshee Prime Large

    It is a 150mm bike meant for a lot more rough stuff then I ride. So most the time the bike is just wondering "what dumb sh!t would ride me on trail like this?" Then I turn him up the hill, and he is like "ohh you fat son-a-b!tch...d@mn you!!"

    I bought the bike to handle my size, not the trails I ride. So far, so good.

    I am 6' 4" and 245 lbs. I ride a Airborne Seeker hardtail in 22" frame size. I ride in Massachusetts on varied terrain. As my first mountain bike, I am getting an education on what it takes to ride rock gardens and challenging technical terrain. Here is a pic of the bike. Loving it so far.

    2013 Moto Ti Fly.
    XT most everything. Flow Ex with Minion (f) and Crossmark (R). XTR FD, SLX crank. Ergo grips. J&L seat post with WTB saddle. Very happy with ride. Anyone else with titanium frames? I'm wondering about the life expectancy of the frame under my 280 pounds of raw fury.

    6'6" 210 lbs.
    Just picked up an XL Santa Cruz Superlight 29 last week, an upgrade from my hardtail.
    Love it so far but still tweaking the fit.
    Installed a Thomson Elite layback post and a 10 degree rise 110mm stem and have a 120mm Reba on the way. Other than those modifications it's a pretty good fit and is holding up well to my abuse.
    Changed the tires as well. The stock Crossmarks worked ok but I threw a 2.25 Ardent on the rear and a 2.1 Ignitor on the front. Much better now.
    A shot before the mods. No after shot yet.

    220 lbs as of this morning and 6' even. I recently purchased my 2014 Trex Remedy 9 29er and am still in the process of tweaking it the way I like it. Added Race face Atlas pedals and some new grips after chopping some of the bar down. As of now that's all that has been done.

    Wheels and maybe a pike are on the docket for upgrades.

    Just as an update...

    6'4" 290# I have been riding a 2013 Camber Comp since December 2012 and have only had a single spoke nipple sheer off. I have not even had to true the wheels since that was fixed in the summer of 2013. The Elixer 3s leave something to be desired in power for me, I would not take this down a gnarly hill since I would not be able to stop. Those will be replaced soon.
    Fat guys need bikes too.
