I would say that that bike (depending on the year), would hold a rider in the ~450 lbs range, provided you only rode it and don't try downhill mountain biking with it.

its an 04 which is before Trek took over Gary Fisher... i suppose that means its a better built bike than the more recent gary fishers? I dunno if this is true i remember reading it somewhere though...
