    200 lbs. Definitely want a very sturdy bike. Full cro-mo. Be prepared to spend well over $300 if you want anything half decent.

    Truvativ cranks
    Marzocchi Dirtjam Pro Fork

    The only thing I replaced were the POS pedals.

    Some things do happen to intertwine in here sometimes. In this case, it does not.

    It was a joke about how bad singletrack rims are, not a racial one.
