    575 for a Clyde???

    6'2" pushing 250 lbs. Ride mostly XC. Wheels don't leave the ground much at all. The ledges that I do are not over 24" and I nose over them.

    Of all the bikes I've looked at so far it has been my favorite. Do ya'll think it will hold up?

    I would say yes, but my recommendation would be to go with the RP3. The DHX Air requires really high pressures for someone your weight. The other alternative would be to go DHX-Air with a RP3 cannister, but not sure how that would affect the ride.

    If you aren't doing drops and hucks, I would think it would hold up fine. Plus you'll be riding more on a shiny new 575 so you'll be down to 230 in no time...
