Can't find too much info on the GT IDXC 3.0 (or even 2.0-4.0) bikes when it comes to how strong they actually are. Found one thread where someone broke the frame and was 200lbs or so - but could have been a "fluke" since it happens.
Anyone out there have one of these bikes and weigh 240+?
Thanks in advance!

Guess it's not a popular bike?!

A local guy broke one at the shock mount, he was around 200.

Wow! Weak there too eh.
Do you know which model/year it was?

If it's breaking with 200lbs then I wouldn't touch it at 240+.

Although I hear for the 05+ models they beefed it up a bit.
Btw your '07 HR is nice!
