Howdy everyone. Long story short: Used to be a decent Clydesdale MTB weekend warrior at 230-240. Some injuries, family issues, yada, yada, yada.......no more biking but continued to eat post race type meals of beer/burritos/pasta and now am 300+
It's been 10 years since I have been on my old Delta V but I want to get back on and I'm concerned that I may be too heavy to ride? I think I need a new seat for my wide load butt at the very least. My bike is a '94 Cannondale Delta V (oil headshox front susp, hard tail) I have good sturdy parts on it, Rhyno Downhill rims, old school XTR/Sachs/Synchros parts. I have put new tubes/tires on and cleaned and lubed everything. I have all kinds of aches/pains in my back and every place else. Should I use this bike or get a full suspension MTB for ease of suffering or should I lose a bit before getting on the bike? I don't want to go race next month or jump off cliffs any more, I just want to ride again.
