rider weight limits on bike frames
anyone know where I can get weight limit specifications for bikes.. I am looking for performance bike but I am @215lbs.. I am dropping weight.. Most performance bikes are designed around riders in the 130 / 170lb class. That being said I know bikes are built stong but reason tells me a performance bike designed like that will not perform characteristically with a 220 lb clyde on it (like me).
I want performance but I am finding manufacturers and especially dealers do not want to give up weight limit info.. thaey want to swell.
I had a real weird ride on a Merlin. that felt like I was riding a noodle.. It was scary as hell...
I wonder about CADD9 thin walled aluminum (Iam riding a older cannondale now)..
can anyone here provide me with a resource?
