    Cool-blue Rhythm I need advice please!

    Hi there,

    I hope to find an answer to what kind of mountain bike I need considering my height/weight. I'm a 6'5", 220 lbs and looking for a full suspension, 29 inch mountain bike that's quality. It will be used (and slightly abused for challenging trail biking rather than actual mountain/downhill biking.

    Not that I have $$$ to waste, but I'd rather accept the lesser evil and pay the premium for quality/durability/no headache than save some change and be unhappy.

    Thank you for your input/expertise!

    I'm 6'4", 255 pounds, riding a Specialized Stumpjumper FSR 29er. It's workin' out great for me.
    I like turtles

    I will definitely do research on it.
    Are you happy with overall the quality of it? What downsides does it have?
    Thanks for your time

    What bike you get is really going to depend on what kind of cash you want to drop. Are you sure you dont want to consider a hardtail?

    I checked some other Stumpjumper FSR 29er reviews - many of them very favorable and written by taller riders. Thanks, I think I ight just get one of them.

    No hardtail, I always wanted a full suspension plus I do have a hard tale hybrid already (like it a lot - Track 7200)
    I wouldn't like to spend more than $2,500.
    Somebody recommended Stumpjumper FSR 29er...any thoughts on that?

    thanks
