Hey all.....I am a 250lb road rider(vintage...1980s bikes), and am wanting to build up a 29er for myself, as I love the ride/feel of the bikes, and would make a nice change of pace from my road bikes. Was wanting to know if there is anything I should keep in mind when getting shocks for the bike, due to my weight? Will be building a hardtail with front shocks. Anything I should be aware of due to my weight......not wanting to get a front fork that will be pegged out most of the time due to my weight.
Thanks for any tips/suggestions!
