    New question here. Will the Raleigh Talus 4.0 26" 2013 Be and okay bicycle to lose weight on?

    I weigh around 250 Lbs. and im looking into losing weight by cycling. I know the max limit on most bikes is 300 Lbs. and im okay with that. my problem is I search too many reviews and i cam upon one that mentioned a guy being 210 Lbs. and he could bottom the suspension fork. I dont want to just get on it and drop it all the way down. could i have some suggestions please? Here is the bike...Raleigh Men's Talus 4.0 Mountain Bike '13 @ Sun and Ski Sports...

    Id like to also state that I am increasingly losing weight. But id like to make the purchase this Saturday. The shop im going to sells Fuji, Haro, and Raleigh.

    I also know of a shop that sells Specialized and Trek.
    Somebody mentioned this one Raleigh Misceo 2.0 Flat Bar Urban Bike '13 @ Sun and Ski Sports for street and trail. thoughts?
    My limit is around 450.

    Thanks guys!!

    This 29er has better drive components--Shimano Alivio/Deore. It is $420 delivered. Rolls better than a 26.

    On this bike and the bikes you list the coil spring in the Suntour fork works within a range of weight- not 250. An air fork can work for a broader range, including 250.
    The Suntour upgrade program is 189+ ship for a Raidon air fork.
    Used Rebas off ebay would work.
    A used bike with an air fork is another option.

    The second listing with a ridged fork would work with your weight.

    And we're you saying the misceo 2.0 would work for me? The second listing. Could that bike candle light to medium trails?
