    Kona Unit weight limit

    Hello everyone,

    I'm ready to build my first 29er SS with a Kona Unit 2010 size 22" frame and the Kona Project 2 fork.
    Do you know if there is some kind of weight limit for this frame or for steel frame in general?
    Actually I'm around 260 lbs...

    Thanks a lot for your help,
    J.

    No weight limit that I know of...I have a buddy who was over 300 and he is still riding a steel frame I rode for 2 years. You will be fine.. and besides, the Unit has a lifetime warranty. Go for it.
    The only regrets in life, are the risks you didn't take.

    When I got my unit, I was 273 and im now 255 with 0 issues. Chain stretched a bit, but nothing out of the ordinary. And, what do you expect from 270 lbs mashing on a SS all day.
    -It's time to shred some mild to moderate gnar!!

    The limitation of any bike is not the frame, but the wheels/suspension.

    I have another question regarding the Kona Project 2 fork, do you know if there is any rotor limit for it?
    I'm thinking to use a 203mm rotor in frot and 185 back...

    Thanks!
