I'm 6'3", 260lb and looking at my first mtb. I ride bmx in high school, and haven't ridden since. I've come across an incredibly polite and helpful lbs, and they stick spesh: I rode their fatboy for a couple years, and have always been impressed with the company.
I had originally decided on a RH Pro, but then I saw the Carve Comp. I have a few simple (read stupid) questions :
1) is the M4 frame enough to hold my weight? I've always had steel bikes.
2) is the geometry difference enough to matter? I'll be riding the FATS trails here in the CSRA, coupled with pedaling around the local dirt roads.
3) I've come to understand that one would be better served dropping another few dollars initially if possible. Between these two bikes, would I be best served with the Carve?
I understand we're armchair-quarterbacking here, but I would like as much info as humanly possible prior to dropping $1600. Also, if there's anyone else in the CSRA,check out Andy Jordans, as they know their stuff.
