So I found a bicycle on Craigslist that looked interesting and it happened to be my size so I took a look at it and came home with a new toy It is a 2001 Giant Cypress lx full suspension hybrid. The frame is 4130 Cro-moly and the rear shock is a DNM DV22 with a 900lb spring, manufacturer recommends an 1100lb spring for heavier riders which I am looking into but my question is do any of you larger stature fellas or ladies ride on a full suspension bike? is a full suspension bike a no no for a 300 pound fella or as long as the correct shock is used its good to go?
I took it for a short spin and it felt good other than the suspension feeling odd compared to my mountain bike which only has a suspension fork.
What say you? oh and here is a pic of the new acquisition
