    6'5" / 235 lbs.

    I have a hoops buddy, who after watching how much fun we have on our bikes, wants to see if our sport is right for him. With his circus-freak frame and higher center of gravity he's got a few concerns.

    So I was just wondering if there's anyone else in the valley, of similar size, who happens to have an extra or older bike sitting around the garage that they wouldn't mind letting go for a cheap price?

    The brother doesn't really want to open up the wallet yet until he knows if this is something that is going to work for him.

    Please PM me if you think you might be able to help.

    Thanks AZ board!

    Have him try renting a 29er, maybe a Rockhopper 23" or something else that might fit: http://www.specialized.com/us/en/bc/...enuItemId=9253

    I have a 2000 Specialized Enduro Comp in XL. I was almost exactly your friends size until about a year or so ago I lost myself a few pounds.

    Bearings in the rear suspension were replaced recently, not more than maybe 15-20 hours riding since they were done.

    I don't know what it's worth, maybe $500 or make an offer? PM me if you guys want to check it out.

    You're going to want to be sure it's a 29er for him or it won't be as fun.
