hi all, new guy hear.
i have recently started looking for a new bike for myself. (under $500)
i am 6'2" #230 i plan on using my bike for just biking around, no drops or jumps etc. i do plan on using it for camping so it will be me plus a backpack/gear.
i found a 2006 trek 6500 for 499.00 i think that is a decent deal but being a bigger guy i don't want to destroy it in the first year.
hear is a link to the bike,
i am not very knowledgeable about components and tech stuff so i was wondering if i could get your thoughts. i know the 07' 6500 changed front forks from 80mm to 100mm, is that going to be very noticable to a guy like myself?.
thanks for any help - big
