Felt z85 for 220 pounder
Calling all clydes! Hello there! I have been looking around this forum area for a while now looking for advice.. lots of great ideas and opinions here! For a sport that caters to the lighter sorts of people its good to find an area that includes us bigger guys!
A little about me; I used to weigh about 320, I played some college football, and played a year of arena after college... I decided it was time to lighten up a bit and take some weight off my frame.. It has been a year now and I'm down to 220! I credit cycling and eating healthier to my weight loss...
That being said.. I've achieved much of the loss to mountain biking and an old steel Raleigh road bike. Now, after completing the MS 150 ride (my first century) I decided its time for an upgrade.. I have ridden the allez elite and the felt z85. I really really liked the z85... It has a longer top tube which will accomodate my longer upper body, and with 105 gruppo it seems pretty legit for 1150.
Any opinions on felt brand as a whole, ie, does the z series seem like a frame set that will accomodate a 220 pounder who still mashes like he was 300? lol
Any input would be great! Keep up the great work fellas (and ladies)!
