Need a big bike!
I have searched the forum thoroughly and have come up with some great ideas for a bike for myself. As a father of three youngs boys who are racing, I suddenly have the need to get a BMX bike and do a little riding in the streets, empty lots and even on the track. The issue at hand...I am 6'6" and 260lbs. I will obviously need a big bike that can handle my weight. I have narrowed it down to a few bikes:
- Redline Flight Pro 24" Cruiser - great bike for the money, have rideen one and feel comfortable, local dealer, lightweight
- Volume Z06 26" Sledgehammer - looks to be very comfortable, slightly more expensive, zero local dealers which means I would have to order it without ever riding/seeing it
- DK General Lee - another good bike with no local support, inexpensive, a little heavy
- Shadow Conspiracy Shadow X Invisable - no local support, limited production bike, looks nice, fairly heavy
Can I get you experienced guys to weigh in on this? I really don't want to have to buy a bike and then throw a bunch of money/upgrades at it. At my age/size I highly doubt I will ever be competitive with racing, but I want to give it a decent shot. Thank you very much for your guidance.
